glossed catalogue of paintings 1976-1977
VITTORIO MAZZUCCONI
(2/8)


THE FIRST PAINTINGS The path spontaneously starts with a duality of values, as the sky and the earth, the good and the evil, the light and the darkness, the spirit and the matter, whose elaboration will always be carried on in all Mazzucconi’s works.
The research for an inner harmony is on the other hand opposed to the breaking of such an harmony, as one can see in these studies.
In the same period, although on a different plan, Mazzucconi was designing the façade of the Avenue Matignon building in Paris, that shows the same opposition and complementarity.
