Galleria Edieuropa

The origins of Galleria Edieuropa - already Editalia - must be traced in the publishing of the first number of the magazine "QUI arte contemporanea" in july 1966.

   The pioneers where five artists: Capogrossi, Colla, Fontana, Leoncillo, Sadun and, in the redational committee, appeared names as Pasmore and Lipton, rather than historians of arts as Giovanni Carandente, Lorenza Trucchi, Mario Verdone and Marisa Volpi.

   Editor and director Lidio Bozzini, founder of the publishing house Editalia, in the editorial department of the magazine in via del Corso started organizing art shows of the most famost artists and younger ones. Among the exhibits to remember, there's the one on Accardi, on Turcato, on Paolini, on Kounellis, on Scialoja, on Pascali, on Mattiacci, on Mochetti, on Uncini, on Afro and on Burri. At the shows followed debates with the partecipation of italian and foreigners art critics, that raised a big interest in all of those that were passionate in the evolution of art during the "mythic Sixties".

   The Gallery has always favored esteemed names of the area of interest of the none figurative italian language as Balla, Dottori and Prampolini; memorable the anthological on Futurism in Rome from 1910 to 1940 and the show The myth of the machine in Futurism.

   Interchanging monographical shows with collectives, the gallery has suggested the most important artists of the italian and international abstractism.
