T/03 Franco Matticchio Il Dettaglio Ignoto – non disponibile
24 x 21 cm
80 pages, hardcover.
Book with preface by Vincenzo Mollica.
Matticchio’s paintings, from the largest to the smallest, do not go in procession, do not wait for visitors, are not designed to be exhibited or even to be celebrated, they just wait for a helping hand to pick them up to say: here we are and you so far where have you been?
TRICROMIA ILLUSTRATOR’S INTERNATIONAL ART GALLERY
Founded in 1990, for thirty years it has been promoting illustrators and cartoonists with passion and a playful spirit. She has never been satisfied with the evanescence of an exhibition, always “for a fixed period”, implementing constant care in immortalizing the movement of the images that rest on the white walls of the gallery and then take other directions, fly elsewhere. Artists such as Mattotti, Muñoz, Toppi, Pericoli, Altan, Mannelli, Ricci, and many emerging young people, were discovered and presented by Giuseppina Frassino who in the gallery, whose historic headquarters was for years in Via di Panico first and then in Via della Barchetta, has imbued the Roman artistic life with events and exhibitions dedicated to the world of illustration. In recent years, Tricromia has made a further investment in favor of artists, becoming an art editor. Together with the authors he decided to “fix” the beauty of their drawings in publications, mainly books, but also precious boxes, papers and author’s notebooks and even a theater. The first graphic project of the Tricromia books was by Stefano Ricci, now the design is entrusted to Sara Verdone who takes care of the entire graphic image of the gallery.
