Conceived entirely by Enzo Cucchi, the volume is the first artist’s book published by the Fondazione MAXXI. Produced on the occasion of the monographic exhibition held at the museum, the publication brings together fifteen drawings formatted by the artist to create new connections, images of the installation, a brief contribution by the curator and institutional texts by the Director and the President. The paper chosen for cover and pages is of particular value, while the finishes of the drawings are handmade. The artist’s book is published in a limited edition signed by Enzo Cucchi.
