The show

Carlo Giuliano (Turin, 1941) was from 1992 to 2005 Director of the Albertina Academy and, from 1976 to 1990, director of the staging and set designer of the Teatro Stabile. His work, while throwing solid roots in a very specific portion of the artistic research of the 60s, was able, within a coherent design path, to germinate aesthetic fruits that can also be tasted in our contemporaneity.

After a phase in which, as a very young enfant prodige, he made paintings on canvas already in adolescence, imbued with the best spirit of the Piedmontese twentieth century, the subsequent evolution of Carlo Giuliano as an artist can, in certain respects, be inserted within the kinetic research of the first 60s, albeit with an absolutely personal vision, extraneous to certain "machinist" rigidities typical of that movement in its organized aspects, and claiming the need to keep in mind the primacy of the artist's manual intervention compared to the "secondary" absolute symbolized by the highlighting of object nudity.

This ability to marry fantasy and rigor with happy results, ancient "technè" and aesthetics in its original etymology of "feeling with the senses", private dimension and public space, is, not surprisingly, very well symbolized by the fundamental professional experiences to which Giuliano has harmoniously supported his activity as an artist, such as that of set designer, where the responsibility of theatrical productions stands out, collaborating with personalities such as Ugo Gregoretti, Mario Missiroli and Luca Ronconi.
