Catalogue Note

"I want to express the contradiction of my feelings, to go slowly in them to find the deep core of it. What matters to me is just what you see; what is written with matter on the page of our perception, what can be read simply by looking at the sculpture" (Leoncillo Leonardi cited in: Enrico Mascelloni and Lucia Torossi, Leoncillo mostra antologica, Rome 1990, p. 91, online).
