The show

With the focus on Attilio Cassinelli, the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art is dedicating an exhibition to the language of illustration for the first time. Illustrator, poet, narrator through images, lover by direct admission of "simple things", Attilio Cassinelli has the great merit of having enhanced the visual communication aimed at younger children thanks to his singular synthesis ability.

After his debut as an advertising graphic designer, he began in 1965, with La casa sull'albero, on the occasion of the Bologna Children's Book Fair, a long and particularly fruitful process of illustrator and publisher, collaborating with Giunti publishing house in the field of stories for childhood and invention of board games. The salient feature of the unstoppable ninety-six year old artist is, in the context of illustration for children, to have given birth, ever since the sixties, to a "bestiary" - the paper Zoo, the Pericles dog, Teddy Bear , Rosso, the Topini and much more - feeding throughout his career the main strands of animalism, trees and nature, already aware of the issues related to environmental protection, the same that led him to collaborate with the photographer Sebastião Salgado for the booklet O tesouro escondido.
