"... The impetuosity of Fazzini, analysis and synthesis of Boccioni Fontana, meditation Licini and spontaneity of Leoncillo, the construction of Melotti and the feeling of Novelli take values that must compete articulation logic of that unity which is functional sculpture. " So Joseph Appella describes the work of the artist and friend Giacinto Cerone. Born in Melfi in 1957, where he made his debut with exhibitions and performances, the artist will maintain a constant link with the region of origin while moving permanently to Rome in 1984. He died prematurely in 2004, interrupting a research dedicated to the continual experimentation with materials and techniques - from plaster ceramics, marble and wood, to the most daring combination of industrial materials such as moplen, polyethylene and silicone - with which it has to always established an emotional and physical. Through a significant selection of works, the catalog offers the opportunity to know the entire work by the independent path, ranging from suggestions conceptual and expressive physicality and therefore difficult to place within the currents and movements outlined.
