This volume examines the production of small-format works by Agostino Bonalumi. Known and acclaimed internationally as one of the most significant contributors to the European cultural debate since the 1960s, he succeeded in transcending the informalist language. The experience of looking at ‘small gems’ analyzed in this publication is rather like that of examining a miniature, a precious object. Something minute and exquisite, a self-contained microcosm whose value lies in its intrinsic and less conspicuous qualities. The challenge in cases like these is to construct a system of signs within a space that is clearly delimited and reduced to the indispensable. Thus the work becomes a point of contact between the imagination of the artist and that of the person who observes it.
