    Interesting and hypnotic artwork drawn by Agenore Fabbri (Quarrata, Pistoia, 1911-Savona, 1998), an Italian painter and sculptor. When he was only 12, he entered the School of Arts and Crafts in Pistoia, and then was admitted to the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, where he frequented the artists' Caffè Giubbe Rosse, meeting point for the intellectuals known as the Ermetici Group (Eugenio Montale, Carlo Bo...) and came into contact with the painter Ottone Rosai and the poet Mario Luzi. During his life, he also met other famous artists, among others Picasso, Arturo Martini, Lucio Fontana. In 1967, he illustrated ten poems by Nobel Prize Salvatore Quasimodo, who, after a long friendship, had dedicated an open letter to Fabbri which was published in the Italian weekly magazine Tempo on the occasion of his solo exhibition at the Borgogna Gallery, Milan. Fabbri received a lot of awards, including the International Sculpture Award (1955), the International Sculpture Award (1959), the First Prize at the Mostra d'Arte Sacra in Trieste (1966), and those of the Milan Triennale where he was appointed with two Gold Medals and the Grand Prix for Ceramics.

    Fabbri worked mainly with ceramic and terracotta, developing progressively new solutions such as riflessatura (reflection), while in the following two decades he preferred bronze and wood. He also executed many artworks using materials like iron, tin, zinc and steel. From 1981, he discovered the painting, before using the classic oil and acrylic colors and then, in the last phase of his career, adding to the canvas materials of "recovery" such as sand, stones, rags and textiles, tin cans, etc.
