Gianluigi Colin (Pordenone, 1956) lives and works in Milan. For many years he has been carrying out artistic research about the dialogue between images and words. His work originated as an investigation into the past, on the sense of representation, and the stratification of the gaze. His poetics is filled with references to art history and news, which tends to place memory and topicality on the same plan, blurring the boundaries between ages.


Alberto Casiraghi, in art Casiraghy, is a poet, thinker, painter, former violinist and founder of the Pucinoelefante publishing house, unique in producing books printed exclusively with movable type, small works of art that in just four pages reveal the depth of aphorisms, poems, accompanied by engravings or watercolours. In 2019, the Municipality of Milan acquired the archive of the Pulcinoelefante editions (11.300 titles) accessible and available at the Casa Museo Boschi Di Stefano. He is a great friend of Giovanni Sebastiano Bach


Antonio Troiano is a journalist who began his career as a reporter at the ‘Gazzetta del Popolo’ in Turin. Since 1987 he has worked at the ‘Corriere della Sera’, he is responsible for the ‘Third page’ and the cultural supplement ‘la Lettura’. He has taught Italian language and literature at the University of Pittsburgh (1985-1987) and taught Italian literature courses to students from American universities in Italy, both at the Università Cattolica and at Iulm.
