During 14-29. January 2010, the gallery Cristiani in Torino / Italy featured life and works of Flaminio Bertoni with an extraordinary show called “Flaminio Bertoni. Laboratorio di idee” (laboratory of ideas).
Based on several private collections, Cristiani shows the works of Bertoni in about 50 exhibit pieces, particularly the period of the three decades between the 1930s up to the end of the 1950s.
For those who have the chance to visit this exhibition, please do take this unique opportunity to experience the outstanding works of a genius.
