De America is a series of some fifty paintings on paper and canvas created by Emilio Vedova in Venice between 1976 and 1977, subject of the exhibition organized by the Galleria dello Scudo and the Fondazione Emilio e Annabianca Vedova. After the war, New York encouraged a dialog between American Abstract Expressionism and European art activities. It happened between Venice and America, too. Industrious collectors came to Venice to acquire the best proposals of the time and the Biennale also oundertook an intense activity of promotion in South American countries. This exhaustive catalog offers an occasion for reconstructing the steps of an “American” itinerary in which Vedova’s painting was influenced by the radical transformations wich, above all in the 1960s and 1970s, deeply affected the country’s social context.
