Arte Povera was among the most important aggregations not just in Italian art of the 1960s, but in all avant garde art from that period. Roughly translated as "poor art", the term was coined by the critic Germano Celant to describe the radical use of common objects in the work of such artists as Anselmo, Boetti, Calzolari, Fabro, Kounellis, Metz, Merz, Paolini, Pistoletto, Penone, and Zorio. Until now, this conceptually daring and rebellious movement has lacked a single, adequate book to put it into perspective. With extensive photographic documentation of the unrepeatable works which defined the movement, this book is important and provocative.
