Maurizio Nannucci has been a protagonist of Italian art for a number of decades.
Since the 1960s the artist has been exploring the relationship between art, language and image, between light-colour and space creating unpublished conceptual projects, characterized by the use of different means: neon, photography, video, sound, artist’s books and multiples. 1967 was the date of his first neon works which gave his creations a dimension more varied in significance and a new perception of space. Since then his research has always been interested in an interdisciplinary dialogue between the work, architecture and urban landscapes as shown by the numerous collaborations with Renzo Piano, Massimiliano Fuksas, Mario Botta, Nicolas Grimshaw and Stephan Braunfels. In 2015 the MAXXI in Rome dedicated an anthology to the artist preceded by the most recent personal exhibitions: Musée d’art modern et contemporain, Saint Etienne, Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence, Palazzo della Triennale, Milan, Altes Museum, Berlin, Mamco , Geneva and Lenbachhaus, Munich. His neon installations are present in places and public institutions worldwide: the Rome Auditorium Parco della Musica; the Berlin Bibliothek des Deutschen Bundestages; the Kuntshalle in Vienna; Lenbachhaus, Munich; the Fondazione Peggy Guggenheim in Venice; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; MAXXI, Rome; the Museo Novecento, Florence. On many occasions he has taken part in the Biennali d’Arte e di Architettura; Documenta of Kassel; the Biennali in San Paolo, Sydney, Istanbul and Valencia.
