On invitation to the “XXXIII Biennale Internazionale di Venezia” exhibition, he wins the highly prestigious “Premio Officiale” earmarked for an Italian graphic designer. He exhibits his “Logogrifi”, from the Greek “logos” speech and “grifo” fishing-net, in other words, manipulated ready-mades, puzzles, words taken apart and put back together to form other, potentially more infinitive words, obtained by using the technique of embossing on blotting paper, white on white.

Biography 1970

He creates his first sculptures, at first some scale models in polystyrene, then in bronze. He is especially attracted to this metal because of its nobility and capacity of lasting over time, as compared to other materials. He creates the “Medaglia per le Universiadi”.

At the “Torbandena” Gallery in Trieste, he presents some in polystyrene (all shown in the catalogue published with an introduction by Katia Ambrosic). Similar works are exhibited at the “Nuova Loggia” Gallery in Bologna (with a...
