Scheggi’s dazzling work developed in postwar Milan, an effervescent and international artistic context, enriched by the crucial presence of Lucio Fontana, and of experimental artists from the new Italian generation: Piero Manzoni, Enrico Castellani, Agostino Bonalumi, Dadamaino, Gianni Colombo. With them, Scheggi’s work shares the desire to move beyond traditional painting into a new creative and perceptual dimension: objective, physical, and spatial. The volume brings together pivotal examples of Scheggi’s work on the spatial investigation of surface: from the early metal assemblages of his Lamiere to the mature complex constructions of his Intersuperfici and Strutture modulari.
