Lucia Di Luciano & Giovanni Pizzo: Selected Works


‘Almost imperceptible is the fact that this species of cold geometric and mathematical process could manifest itself as a light lace, like a fabric made of the threads of imagination’.

—Giovanni Pizzo

Lucia Di Luciano & Giovanni Pizzo: Selected Works presents a radical rediscovery of two of Italy’s 20th-century vanguard painters, presenting decades of their work from the ‘60s through now. Featuring never-before-seen paintings, the book explores the artists’ evolution through their strict daily practice guided by mathematical computations and permutations in black and white, through wilder experimentations in colour. Lucia and Giovanni worked under the same roof in studios separated by a concrete wall, and for the first time, this collection presents their work together in a single volume in dos-à-dos binding.

Edited and introduced by one of Apartamento’s long-standing contributors, Fabio Cherstich [editor of Larry Stanton: Think of Me When It Thunders], his definitive selection offers unique insight into their ever-experimental careers. The book also includes an exclusive personal account by artist Nathalie Du Pasquier, and a lyric text by the late Giovanni; Lucia Di Luciano & Giovanni Pizzo is dedicated to his memory, conserving his incredible, poetic vision of their work; ‘Other times, swarms of little black squares resemble the shifting clouds of starlings in the September skies of Rome’.
