'60年代後半に起こったイタリアの芸術運動"Arte Povera（アルテ・ポーヴェラ）"の作家、Giuseppe PENONE（ジュゼッペ・ペノーネ）のコミュ。
Giuseppe Penone was born in Garessio (Cuneo) in 1947. His first artworks, from circa 1968, were concerned with direct contact with the natural environment, in particular with shrubs―which, with his modifications, manifest and modify processes of growth.
The artist turns to nature as the generator of precultural forms that culture adapts in order to give meaning. Trees are the elements he favors to embody this reflection: with The Trees, a cycle begun in 1969, he carves wooden beams until the image of the tree the beam used to be begins to emerge.
As bodies are also part of nature and its relationship with the external world, since 1970 Penone has projected slides and then made pencil drawings of enlarged pictures of skin on the walls of the exhibition space.
