Two new monographic volumes have become part of the series dedicated to the sculptures active in the Monumental Cemetery of Verona: “Gli Spazzi. Una lunga dinastia di artisti 1380-1936” and “Mario Salazzari. Opere pubbliche e per la memoria”.
The volume dedicated to the Spazzi dynasty, of which Camilla Bertoni is the author, tells the human and artistic events of the original family of the Como Val d’Intelvi and active in Verona from the early nineteenth century until 1936. In particular, Giovanni, Grazioso, Attilio and Carlo Spazzi were among the protagonists of the artistic history of the city in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and authors of many works in the Venetian capital and in the Monumental Cemetery of Verona.
Edited by Camilla Bertoni and with the contributions of Maddalena Basso and Gabriella Bologna, the second monograph focuses on the life of Mario Salazzari, originally from Lugagnano di Sona. Author of numerous monuments to the fallen in Verona and its province and of works related to the celebration of the dead inside the Monumental Cemetery of Verona, he was a multifaceted artist and he also dedicated himself to small-format sculptural production, drawing, painting and poetry .
Both volumes can be purchased in the Lamberti Tower ticket office and during guided tours; they are also on sale in the main online bookstores.
