Felice Limosani and Riccardo Guarneri meet in a spontaneous, intergenerational dialogue to reread and reflect on the path of the Florentine artist. Born in 1933, a protagonist of Italian analytical painting, his early work can be ascribed to the abstract and informal Art. He approached painting at a young age at the same time as his activities as a musician, which led him to perform with orchestras in Italy and abroad. His identifying mark can certainly be traced back to the study of color as light, both in graphic strokes as painting and in research related to visual perception. A theoretical theme, to which he combines the method, that since 1962 has made sign, light and color his aesthetic and expressive language. Thus were born the first very clear works, as ethereal as they were elegant, in which space is marked by slight luminous variations and whose surfaces are treated mainly in pencil. Even then he sensed as central the theme of light, but he still could not renounce matter.
From '64 onward he acquires a more rigorous and geometric structure. If in the 1960s Guarneri's research is more radical in configuring the structure of the work, later he draws on an imagery composed of signs, stains, shades and calligraphic vibrations. A multiple prize-winner at national and international exhibitions, he has partcipated in European New Painting exhibitions, obtaining several teaching professorships. There have been more than 100 of his solo exhibitions. Of particular note is his presence at the Venice Biennale in 1966, only to return, in 2017. Limosani and Guarneri through artistic conversation highlight a different "musicality" among the arts, ranging between sensitive knowledge and ecstatic painting, proposing new perspectives, new reflections and new ideas imbued with aisthesis at the expense of dominant rationalism.
