Carlo Ramous (1926-2003) was a designer of air volumes, a builder of pure shapes, a sculptor able to model the matter – clay, wood, steel – to make it light and immaterial. A challenge to gravity and, at the same time, a search for harmony of the body of sculpture with the city that hosts it.
This volume tells a story made of bodies and space, unfolding over fifty years of his work, from the early archaic shapes, as fragile as archaeological artefacts, to the monumental sculptures for large urban architecture works.
