Claudio Strinati


"... Rossati is an artist who has learned from the twentieth century a concreteness of language, from a long time fiercely opposed by those who continues to distinguish the twentieth century’s history of art between ‘avant-garde’ and ‘tradition’.
Now, exceeded the threshold of the new millennium, this dialectic increasingly takes on a very different character, much more interconnected and much freer than the many conceptual cages of the past.
Rossati is a free spirit who follows his inspiration and nothing concedes to the lure of easy effect, but his figurative world, globally meant, is one of the most fascinating, delicate and magical lands on which the observer can move taking constant cues and continuous suggestions arising from the high quality and the deep ethics of this artist...".
