Giulio Turcato (Mantua, 1912 - Rome, 1995) was one of the most important Italian painters of the 20th century and one of the most interesting abstract artist in Europe.
His works is detailed and complex, and includes intriguing figurative and other extraordinary effects which appear in his sculpture and set design. One of his most fascinating pieces is Le Libertà, seven large sculptures in iron painted in various tone colours, about nine feet each, which were installed in 1989 at the Piediluco Lake in the territory of the city of Terni.
On the occasion of their restoration, which was completed in 2009, the Municipality of Terni, in collaboration with the Giulio Turcato Archives in Rome, paid a tribute to the artist with his book, now on the eve of the centenary of his birth. The theme of freedom comes through strongly, taking the shape of a formal-aesthetic value and at the same time as the foundation of human life with all its passions. "Libertà: escape, desire shooting skywards. A forest that grows" (Giulio Turcato, La Dogana, 1985).
