NITTOLO is an experimenter of the mosaic, he uses in his works daring assemblages made of terracotta, paper, fabric, copper, embroidery, juxtaposed on wooden boards painted in acrylic. Even the mosaic does not correspond to the conventional mosaic but it’s closer to memory, to the vestiges of a mosaic.
Starting from the “mosaic concept”, the artist examines each canto and delves into the words of Dante Alighieri imagining that the Supreme poet may have also been inspired by the mosaics, not only of Ravenna but also those of Florence, Venice and Rome.
