Created in collaboration with the Archivio Opera Piero Manzoni (Onlus) this volume is the first complete cataloging of the work of Manzoni.

A major figure in the art scene of Europe in the late 20th century, Manzoni interpreted the cultural experiences of his time and mixed and matched them, furiously inventing a vast variety of found materials and media, from cotton to “shit,” kaolin to polystyrene, and fiberglass to the human body.

Manzoni (1933-1963) created an immense oevure in an all-too-brief career. During the late 1950s and early 1960s, he persisted in building an art that lay outside of trends and labels: an alchemistic, anarchistic art, constantly ready to divest traditional aesthetic values, seeking a complete reinterpretation of the world. This two-volume catalog is no less than due recognition of Manzoni's courage and genius.
