The “line” in the thought and artistic practice of Massimo Fagioli


The “line” as a psychic creation is connected to the construction of identity: from the “possibility of making the line” to the “capability tomake the line” up to the psychic reality of birth (after “consciousperception” and “fantasy”) and to its emergence as a mental creationthat allows self-recognition in the mirror. An essential component of every form of expression is born from the recreation of the “line” and assuch is present in all of Massimo Fagioli’s artistic creations: sketches, drawings, creation of three-dimensional objects (tables, bookcases), sculptures or architectural and urban forms.
