The Ragghianti Foundation in Lucca dedicates a large retrospective exhibition to Luigi Veronesi (Milan, 1908-1998), a painter, photographer, film-maker, theorist, and one of the main protagonists of the Italian abstractionism. A figure of international relevance, Veronesi will be placed in comparison with the works of authors who marked and had a great influence on his training period and on the definition of his artistic language, such as Kandinskij, Klee, Moholy-Nagy, El Lissitskij, Albers, Vantongerloo and other exponents of the Italian and international art of that time. The aim of the exhibition, which will also have multimedia features, is to highlight the opening of interests as well as the dynamic perspective and the inter-code of the art of Veronesi, specifically focusing on two areas within his vast production: the abstract cinema and the "chromatic visualizations of the music", representing two fields where the desire of the artist to create rhythms and visual harmonies and to expand his painting to the time's musical dimension manifests itself in the highest degree.
