The Prize

"Untitled" by Enotrio Pugliese.

Dimensions: 50 x 70 cm
Print run: 65/75

Enotrio Pugliese, better known as Enotrio, was born in Buenos Aires into a Calabrian family who emigrated to Argentina at the beginning of the century. His first contact with the world of culture and art came in a climate characterized by the relationships that the family (even after returning to Italy in 1926) had with the music scene. His father was a well-known first cellist at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires for many years, later becoming a member of the celebrated "chamber quartets".

In Calabria, as a boy, Enotrio began to understand the many social, economic and moral reasons that practically force many Italians to go down the path of emigration. These reasons became the backdrop to his life choices, particularly when - after completing his high school diploma in 1939 - he moved to Rome and enrolled in the Faculty of Chemistry, in the belief that he would then emigrate with better job prospects.

Later, however, his true spiritual interests began to appear in the area of figurative arts, which he moved closer to through magazines and journals. Enotrio Pugliese had a strong sense of places and the passing of time. He had memories and culture from countries, objects and people; he left his mark through paintings, engravings, verses and stories. Thirty years after his death, not an article, a television report, a conference nor an exhibition have offered tribute to this great artist from a Calabria of much rhetoric and memory - both magnificent and progressive.
