abstract

In the case study of Francesco Somaini’s artistic activity, a new theory of monumental sculpture is identified as an alternative to the tradition of the celebratory monument. The sculptor formulated the programmatic manifesto Urgenza nella città (Mazzotta Editore, 1972) with the goal of creating pioneering environments in the cities, according to a new conception of art and society.
