Archivio AURELIO C.  



"I am against the artist and I’d like to have the freedom to be just a painter and a sculptor, to capture with my means, the tools of my work, the images within people’s desires, to take them as a need of mine and translate them in evocative and sacred forms – because I believe in people’s creativity and not in the creativity of individuals " (Aurelio C., 1969)

In a career long over 60 years, Aurelio C. became an important character of the Italian figurative painting. Since his first steps in Rome in 1948 as a scholar of Corrado Cagli during Abstractism and, then, at the side of Mario De Micheli in “Arte Contro” and in the years of Realism with his paintings against the Vietnam war, the murals in Valenza and Carpi, those in Central-America, until his senior years and the cycle of the “Grande Mela”, Aurelio left in the Italian art and culture a significant and original mark.
