Who is Vittorio Mazzucconi



Italiano

"Vittorio Mazzucconi is an artist of international renown, who works over a range of cultural centres such as Milan and Florence, Paris and Athens. He is also an impassioned town-planner, an architect and a painter who translates his deep and dreamt existence into the magic of colour.
Vittorio Mazzucconi is a man who has chosen an active isolation, a secular kind of intellectual monasticism. His figure stands out in the contemporary scene both for his self-imposed silence, felt as a deliberate filter, and for his stand against one of our major ills: the costiveness of the imagination. Vittorio Mazzucconi’s anomalous position can be summed up in an apt image. In point of fact, he is not an architect but a guru. An architect-guru, perhaps, a painter-guru. For decades now, his work has acted as a moral and cultural bulwark against the fads and fancies of our dissipated times. Some creativity is random, some is planned, some is lacking in moderation. The creativity of Mazzucconi the guru is imbued with wisdom."
