Tullio Pericoli 03 acquarello
watercolor on Amatruta paper 30×30 cm
For the watercolors and engravings Tullio Pericoli uses Amatruda paper
Amatruda paper is processed according to the ancient Italian craft traditions.
it is not treated with whiteners, therefore precious for the various graphic techniques.
The Amatruda paper mill is located in Amalfi in the ancient Valle dei Mulini, in via delle Cartiere, in an enchanting position on the bridge over the Canneto river.
The first floor of the building dates back to the 15th century, like the Amatruda family’s tradition of making paper.
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.
