  • About the artwork

    Décollage by Mimmo Rotella from the book "Marilyn Bellezza eterna" (Marilyn Eternal Beauty), by Mimmo Rotella and Alda Merini. This famous décollage is accompanied by an Alda Merini's inedited piece of poetry, like all the décollages of the book, edited in 199 copies, all signed and numbered. Rotella technique is very particular and consists in tearing two or more posters glued to each other.

    Famous film of 1955, "Quando la moglie è in vacanza" (The Seven Year Itch) directed by Billy Wilder is one of the most known films with Marilyn Monroe, also thanks to the timeless scene in which the Diva, strolling trough the street with Tom Ewell, stops on a grate exclaiming: "Oh, do you feel the breeze from the subway? Isn't it delicious?" while her skirt comes up showing her legs.

Mimmo Rotella

Mimmo Rotella

Born in: 1918


Mimmo Rotella (Domenico Rotella), (born Oct. 7, 1918, Catanzaro, Italy - died Jan. 8, 2006, Milan, Italy), is an Italian artist who was best known for his extravagant “double décollages,” which he crafted by ripping posters (particularly movie advertisements) off exterior walls, attaching the fragments to canvases, and then tearing off smaller pieces from the posters to create colourful, often amusing, collages. Mimmo Rotella was the only Italian artist formally linked to the French Nouveau Réalistes artists, with whom he exhibited in the 1960s. Rotella studied art in Naples and held a Fulbright scholarship (1951–52) at the University of Missouri at Kansas City, where he was admired for his experimental “phonetic” poetry. He returned to Italy in 1953 and abandoned painting for his signature décollages and assemblages, into which he incorporated textiles and other materials. Later he experimented with acrylic paint and photographic elements. Rotella lived in Paris in the 1960s and ’70s, but in 1980 he settled in Milan.
