Emilio Vedova. Non dove: a film, an exhibition, a documentary.
With the war ended, Vedova returns to Venice, where he is again hospitalised. Leaves his studio in the Palazzo Carminati to move to the Fondamenta Bragadin, by the Zattere, a known meeting place for artists and intellectuals: “I passed some tumultuous years in that studio... A plethora of experiences; I felt I needed to ‘cleanse’ my palette of all that inflamed colour, define more stringently, compress the planes; and my response was collages like Pescatore, Cucitrice, etc., and a series of drawings, pastels, pen and ink works…”*
In the same period has first contacts with, and begins to exhibit at, international shows.
