Monographic volume dedicated to the Sassarese artist Pino Manos, exponent of the Spazialism movement since 1951, along with Lucio Fontana, Enrico Castellani, Agostino Bonalumi and others. His adhesion and participation is testified by 41 personal and collective exhibitions in 1962. In the same year, together with Europe’s thirty most eminent artists, he was invited to London for adhesion to the “Europe 1962” Manifesto: Painting and Sculpture organised by the New Vision Centre Gallery, envisaged as the basis of the nascent European Union. On the 16th of May 2019, Manos was invited as a guest of honour to the Italian Embassy in London, as the last living successor of Spazialism, to participate in the exhibition “Spaziale! Italian Spazialism and its Legacy”.
A critical essay by Sergio Risaliti, director of the Museo Novecento in Florence, can be seen as an in-depth iconographic apparatus that narrates the vast and transversal artistic activity of a great protagonist of contemporary Italian art.
