Fusi Collection

A number of rooms on the first floor of the museum host the work of Walter Fusi, a Colle-born artist who, treading firmly in the furrow of the Florentine academic tradition in the early part of his career after World War II, was influenced by the legacy of such painters as Emanuele Cavalli and Ottone Rosai, as we can see in his early pictures on display at the beginning of the section. These are followed by a handful of studies on Machines and by the Penetrations in Space cycle in which he embarked on a new phase in his research into the third dimension that was to lead him into the world of sculpture. Fusi returned to painting in the 1970s, developing "optical" two-dimensional surfaces, and spent his final years exploring abstract painting, which he addressed with a new-found freedom of expression.
