Giosetta Fioroni, born into a family of artists, with a mother who deeply loved marionettes, studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and participated since a young age in the cultural climate of the capital that, particular in the sixties, was also a crossroads of foreign masters, passing or permanent visitors, many of whom come from the United States. That was the period of the birth of pop art and also the development of a particular Italian pop art. Giosetta Fioroni, linked in her life by intense and reciprocated love for the writer Goffredo Parise, initially distinguished herself in the elaboration of photographs that were transformed into icons suggestive of style or fashion. She further worked to reach a singular mythic association between the written text and the image. The work we admire here shows us a sort of pointed mountain or of unformed matter, evidently also imbued with notes. On the other hand, the title "Dancing in the dark" could allude to a famous American song. Finally, the mountain ends with the top of a New York skyscraper. This creates a world apart, as the artist did in her famous theaters, where the imagination returns to play a preponderant role, freed from all formal suggestion.
