Remo SQUILLANTINI (Stia, 1920 - Florence, 1996)


Mixed media on cardboard, 35 x 50 cm, 1980s, authentic Squillantini heirs archive


After dedicating himself to an intense illustrator activity that saw him engaged with important Italian and foreign publishers, starting from 1970 he devoted himself exclusively to painting, developing a gallery of characters intent on the rites of everyday life and of which he highlights vices, habits, weaknesses and conformisms. Simple and bashful man he spoke above all through his increasingly popular works. Often he devoted himself to ironic reinterpretations of works from the past and developed his research by thematic cycles: The Seven Deadly Sins, The Sea, The Cabaret, Sinopias of the early 1900s. The expressionist irony and his "Tuscan" emerge in the natural, "osmotic" relationship with Giotto and with Piero della Francesca, his foreign and countrymen, but also by the fact that Stia, a town in the province of Arezzo in which Squillantini was born, is also the place where Dante Ghibelline was exiled and where, as the painter himself states, "the Arno is born and art is born." Remo Squillantini's works have been exhibited in important public and private galleries. Among the personal exhibitions: - Galleria Santacroce, Florence in 1978 - Casino, Sanremo in 1988 - Caffè Pedrocchi, Padua 1992-1993 - Tour Fromage, Aosta in 1999 - Rocca Ariostesca, Castelnuovo in Garfagnana in 2002 - Municipal Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art, Piombino in 2005 - Galleria Marano, Crotone in 2010 - Archaeological Area of Paestum in 2012.
