“Il caso Medardo Roso” is the title of a book published ninety years ago by Ardengo Soffici, the Italian man of letters and painter who had recognized the greatness of the sculptor in Paris. Despite the refinements in critical analysis and the enrichment of opportunities to evaluate Rosso in the context of Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, and his place in the development of modern sculpture- from Picasso and Boccioni to Brancusi- the case is, in fact, still open. Comprehensive investigation of the lifecast works of this 19th century Italian master.
