Edited by Bruno Corà, which is also the author of an interesting opening essay, the catalogue is a focus on Giuseppe Spagnulo’s work, who was born in Grottaglie in 1936. Inside the volume are described the sculptor’s large format and iron-forged works from 1974 to 2014. Two examples are Ferro spezzato of 1974 and Pozzo of 2014. The co-author of the artworks, which is the fire, breaks, tears and carves the shapes in a process in which the gesture is both a performative act and an intense deliberation on the evolution of the volume into the space. As the editor says: «The fire, whose instability is well known by Spagnulo, is the entity through which he has been working on metals for several years.». Spagnulo’s sculptures reflect a breaking of the matter and, at the same time, represent an “archeological” variable of time. The catalogue was printed on the occasion of Canzone di Fuoco, an exhibition held inside the CAMUSAC on the 19th of December 2014. The professor Bruno Corà, editor of the catalogue, is also the curator of the exhibition.
