The first biography of one of the protagonists of Twentieth Century Italian art: the adventurous life of a painter who had no masters. Even though his fame has already crossed every border, it's only thanks to the Quadriennale di Roma that Alberto Burri has a biographer. Alberto Burri was the protagonist of a renaissance in art whose importance still needs to be completely understood.
He had no masters and lived a life worth to be told. From when, as a young physician, he was deported in 1943 to a camp in Texas, until he became one the protagonists of Twentieth Century Italian art. The author of the biography, Piero Palombo, active as a journalist since the Sixties, tells the story of Burri's life, his choices and encounters, helped by Giovanni Carandente's memories and Lorenza Trucchi's testimonies.
