Giustino Caposciutti/Tea Taramino         Plural Art

... in his work as an art educator in 1975 he met the art of people with mental disabilities.
He is fascinated by it and since then he has dedicated a large part of his work to activities, first in the laboratory, at a large center in the Vallette district of Turin and later on promoting them through exhibitions and other events ...

Each disabled artist was joined in the work by a professional artist and together they made a work that was then exhibited in an exhibition and sold at auction for charity.

If, at present, the art of people with psychic disability enjoys a real consideration, it is largely due to all this journey begun over 40 years ago in Turin.
