1978 – Elio Mercuri

“…A maestro for his extreme sensitivity towards ideas and feelings, for that unanimous and very human sense of dignity and of the sacred, for the desperate passion of his identifying with the search for an identity in our time, for the rigor of a career which today appears to be prodigious, Pardini build his vision with the warmth of intimacy and the sublime awareness of culture; with the unaffectedness of a continuous intuition and with calm reflection, he knows how to give his paintings the tone and values of life, and at the same time, the depth of tradition and history.”


Journalist and art critic, he lives and works in Rome, and is the author of numerous books on contemporary art, including “Il caso Schifano”.
