Pietro Pecorari was born on the 25 of January, 1935
into a typical peasant family of Selci-Lama, a village of north Umbria
bordering on Tuscany.
"this letter changed my life"
Salvatore Di Bartolomeo writes:
In June 1980 Pietro exhibited once again in
Florence, at the Logge Rucellai:
In the 80’s he exhibited in Milan, at the “centro
sperimentale di giornalismo”.
“I think his way of painting is very interesting
and witty too: on the one hand it might be surrealism, on the other
1988: Rita Valli, a long-time teacher of the Brera Academy in Milano , notes that Pecorari’s subjects “express in a graceful way human weaknesses”.
And in 1989 Tommaso Paloscia writes with an extraordinary keen sense of awareness:
“Pecorari, in fact
is only apparently
an unarmed and simple-hearted man…
...he holds deep inside
all the contemporary
suffering the toil of
the dramatic anxieties
brought about by the contemporary
ages with its social ,political
and cultural upheavals (…).
Pecorari is to be cherished for all these things which altogether represent his artistic personality.”
