Tato’s dynamic aerial paintings

Tato (born Guglielmo Sansoni, Bologna, 1896-Rome, 1974) created inspired aerial views that allowed him a bird’s eye view in which all of reality exists in constant movement. The Futurist painter transfigured and synthetized the world, forgetting the details like you may forget what you despise.

From above, everything is changeable, temporary, flat.

To become light, color and speed: these were the goals declared in the Futurist Manifesto of Aerial Painting, published in 1929 by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti and various artists, including Tato as well as Depero, Balla, Prampolini, and Filia
