Catalogue Note

"Along with Burri, Fontana, Rotella, Nuvolo belongs to the generation that has enriched the European language with the valuable contribution of the informel, a mode that does not respect the rules or canons, but relies on emotional impulses, sentimental, to express their art. "

Bruno Corà, Tutto Oggi, 5 March 2014, online
