Born in Piacenza in 1912, Cassinari was one of the leading exponents of the Corrente group, founded in 1938 with Treccani, Morlotti, Guttuso, Birolli and De Grada.
His art is of expressionist matrix, with Cubist influences. It is sometimes aggressive, with strong political and social messages, in contrast with the Italian Twentieth Century. He lived for a while in Antibes, during which time he was in direct contact with the work of Picasso and also knew Chagall, Matisse and Gide. He continued his work, utilizing a new compositional rigor of emotional intensity that also characterizes his first paintings.
Cassinari is popular with both the public and critics, so much that he lives his life traveling to exhibit his works in countless Italian cities, museums and galleries (Venice, Piacenza, Florence, Milan, Rome, Palermo, Turin, Brescia etc.) and foreign (Paris, Lausanne, New York, London, Monaco, Berlin, Caracas, Buenos Aires etc.); he has been the main feature of many major contemporary art exhibitions (Venice Biennale, Rome Quadrennial etc.) and has beenawarded several Prizes (Littoriali Prize, Bergamo Prize, Alessandria City Prize, Italian Painting Grand Prix etc.).
The mission at the heart of Theodora is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers by providing visits from professional performers who have been trained to work in a medical environment.
At the Theodora Children’s Charity, we believe that laughter is the best medicine. Our Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers across England. By combining music, play, magic and storytelling these professional performers bring magical moments to brave children in challenging times. We believe that EVERY sick or disabled child should get the giggles that only a Giggle Doctor can bring.
Our Giggle Doctors are professional performers, highly trained to work both in the medical environment and with children with disabilities. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring with them a variety of skills (among our team are actors, entertainers, magicians, musicians and singers). The training consists of a rigorous schedule of artistic and medical workshops, which cover topics such as child development, infection control, child bereavement and the impact of illness and bereavement on families.
