No Puns Intended. A Conversation With Filippo Minelli

A first acquaintance of the works of Filippo Minelli leads us - through the images and visions that he is proposing - to the common denominator that brings them either close together or far from each other, though always making them interact with each other: the watershed word / silence, is a mode of examination chosen to explore and create, not to attribute a meaning to existence....

His family history confirms this: both his parents are scientists, and Bolig˜ himself declares that this field was his initial means of inspiration for his own experiments and his own cultural growth.
