A complex and elusive artist, Gino De Dominicis is considered one of the key figures in contemporary Italian art and a reference point for both the artists of his time and younger generations. Gino De Dominicis' life has always been shrouded in mystery. He chose to stay outside the sphere of media attention and due to this intransigent position no catalogs or books on his works were published. The work entitled “Seconda soluzione di immortalità. L'universo è immobile“, presented at the Venice Art Biennale in 1972, was remembered however: Gino de Dominicis faced charges for having exhibited a young man with Down's Syndrome as an art object. The absolute originality of much of his intuition has anticipated artistic experiences that came to fruit in the 21st century. The catalog, edited by Italo Tomassoni, brings together more than 700 artworks, each one accompanied by a dossier which, alongside the usual technical, chronological and bibliographic data, provides information regarding the context and circumstances that led to the work's creation.The volume also includes a section devoted to the artist's writings, a critical anthology and a catalogue raisonné of his works. The book concludes with appendices reproducing rare and unpublished documents dealing with the artist's life, a complete list of his solo exhibitions, his participation in group shows and an extensive bibliography.

Together with Harald Szeemann, Italo Tomassoni curated the first retrospective devoted to Gino De Dominicis at the 48th Venice Art Biennale in 1999.  In December 1998 he founded the  Associazione Gino De Dominicis. He is among the founders of the Centro Italiano Arte Contemporanea di Foligno, of which he is also the Artistic Director. ...
