1980, oil painting, 50×70

On a surreal background of luminous but dark colours, several characters walk individually, fallowing a precise direction, but collectively the crowd create a hypothetical circle. In transparency we make out images which recall the important events which happened during the year: Pope John-Paul II’s apostolic travels in Africa, the bombing of the train station in Bologna, the Olympic Games in Moscow, the first assassination attempt on a Carabiniere and the earthquake in Irpinia.
