I pittori veneti alle ‘Biennali di Pallucchini’ (1948-1956)
Le partecipazioni e la ricezione della stampa
Venice Biennale was created to magnify this wonderful city also through the encreasing of arts, so a participation of painters born or living in the Veneto region – who originally ‘invented’, with politicians and intellectuals, the Biennale – at the beginning was always considerable. This essay focuses on the analysis of their presence at the Biennale between 1948 and 1956, when Rodolfo Pallucchini was General Secretary of the institution. It is examined through a statistical method that allows a more complete view of this mapping. Another topic is the reception on the press, that highlights the diatribe between artists and critics.
