Alighiero Boetti Il mondo fantastico
What's the good of this video if not to bring back to life the exhibition Alighiero Boetti. Il Mondo Fantastico, which, in turn, had re-proposed a great installation made of little plastic animals, the kind you buy at newsstands? Alighiero Boetti's ZOO was initially thought to be a game between the artist and his sons Agata and Matteo, but it soon took on the appearance, character and importance of a fortuitous and never-ending installation, as Annemarie Sauzeau Boetti writes, which was caught by chance by Giorgio Colombo's lens in the autumn of 1979.
