1978 – Tommaso Paloscia

“…De Micheli, who has been watching this style for over thirty years, is well aware of its history, so it is easy for him to reconfirm his convictions; Yevtushenko has obviously managed to capture the poetic values with which he feels an affinity. In any case, both claim – quite rightly – to be convinced of the pictorial value of Pardini, who is able to transmit all the suggestions which fresco techniques especially are laden with, via his marvelous transparencies. And this kind of recognition counts for a great deal…”
