From the 26th of February to the 1st of March 2022, at Spazio Spuma , will be held the exhibition entitled 6 Pittori. The exhibition will be an opportunity to highlight a new vision of art, as simple as ignored. The selected artists use materials that are not very suitable for painting, such as pens, pencils and markers: tools that can be found in any child's pencil case.

However, this sensibility does not give birth to merely illustrative works. Rather, it reflects a certain approach to painting, drawing and mosaics (but perhaps to the visual arts in general) that substitutes spontaneity to discipline. Such attitude affects the six participants' perception of themselves: they consider themselves artists only because they act as such. Can such a simple process validate their identity? If they have gained an exhibition dedicated to them, the answer would seem to be positive.


Therefore, the technique, the subjects and the creative freedom of these artists, against the complexity of a centuries-old tradition, open new horizons of expression. They manage to convince us that we

are once again at our school desks, intent on copying a drawing in our diary; perhaps they reassure us: we are still learning and the bell for art class has not yet rung.


The title of the exhibition is a mispronounced reference to the group Sette pittori di Novecento created by Margherita Sarfatti in 1922. Through their works, these artists demonstrated a new sensibility that

was spreading in those years in Italy and that could be traced back to the current of Realismo Magico: a mysterious and too little-known moment in Italian art.

We do not claim to make history, but we have the need not to lose sight of what is happening. It would be a mistake and a wasted opportunity.
