Cesare Berlingeri

“The fold is a border area between two opposite and complementary worlds, between the visible and the invisible, between light and darkness”


Cesare Berlingeri was born in Novigrad in 1948 and began painting at a very young age. In the 1960s he worked as a church decorator, thus having the opportunity to travel throughout Europe until he completely immersed himself in the world of contemporary culture. Only in the Seventies did he decide to return to Rome to pursue a career as a set designer and costume designer, becoming manager of the Art sector of the CIF cultural service centers in Calabria. However, his first solo exhibition was held just later in 1975 at the AxA Gallery in Florence. His artistic experiments are based on the use of multiple atmospheric agents in relation to the pictorial material and its transparency, often using linen canvases. Only since 1980 has he elevated color to the absolute protagonist of his creations by spreading it on large surfaces with broad brushstrokes. He still lives and works in Taurianova.
