Enrico Castellani, the ‘father of minimalism’ according to Donald Judd, died at 87.
Born in Castelmassa (Rovigo) in 1930, he studied art, sculpture and architecture in Belgium until 1956, when he graduated from the École Nationale Superieure. The following year he returned to Italy, to Milan. Here he becomes an active exponent of the new art scene together with Manzoni. Together with him he proposes proposing the total elimination of the previous artistic experience. He took part in the Venice Biennale in 1964, in 1966 (with a personal room), in 1984 and in 2003
