Piero Manzoni di Chiosca e Poggiolo, better known as Piero Manzoni (July 13, 1933 – February 6, 1963) was an Italian artist best known for his ironic approach to avant-garde art. Often compared to the work of Yves Klein, his own work anticipated, and directly influenced, the work of a generation of younger Italian artists brought together by the critic Germano Celant in the first Arte Povera exhibition held in Genoa, 1967

A major figure in the art scene of Europe in the late 20th century, Manzoni interpreted the cultural experiences of his time and mixed and matched them, furiously inventing a vast variety of found materials and media, from cotton to shit, kaolin to polystyrene, and fiberglass to the human body.

Germano Celant attended the University of Genoa, where he studied history of art with Eugenio Battisti. He curated many exhibitions on Italian art, including "Identité italienne.

For Manzoni, this meant removing even colour from his works. In these works, as critic and curator Germano Celant has observed, ‘even the transformation process is reduced to nothing: Manzoni chose his achromatic material and displayed its capacity for visual self-determination’ (Germano Celant, ‘Piero Manzoni: The Body Infinite’, in Celant 1998, . 7.

PIERO MANZONI: A Retrospective. Saturday, January 24 – Saturday, March 21, 2009.

Created in collaboration with the Archivio Opera Piero Manzoni (Onlus) this volume is the first complete cataloging of the work of Manzoni.

A major figure in the art scene of Europe in the late 20th century, Manzoni interpreted the cultural experiences of his time and mixed and matched them, furiously inventing a vast variety of found materials and media, from cotton to “shit,” kaolin to polystyrene, and fiberglass to the human body.

Manzoni (1933-1963) created an immense oevure in an all-too-brief career. During the late 1950s and early 1960s, he persisted in building an art that lay outside of trends and labels: an alchemistic, anarchistic art, constantly ready to divest traditional aesthetic values, seeking a complete reinterpretation of the world. This two-volume catalog is no less than due recognition of Manzoni's courage and genius.
