This volume retraces the life of sculptor Adolfo Wildt and provides a vast critical apparatus of his works. An in-depth monograph on the Milanese artist curated by art historian Paola Mola.
Vanni Scheiwiller’s introduction states: “His [Wildt’] art was often misinterpreted and accused of a macabre predominance of decoration, if not downright mistaken for the official art of the regime”. Paola Mola’s meticulous study attempts to mend the ideological gaps which, over time, have contributed to overshadow Wildt’s artistic research.
