Tullio Pericoli, 1936 is an Italian painter and draftsman. He is considered one of the most important Italian artists. In 1961, driven by Cesare Zavattini, he moved to Milan, where he still lives, thus finding himself in the center of cultural ferment of those years. He begins to collaborate with the daily Il Giorno with drawings that accompany stories by Calvino, Primo Levi, Gadda, Soldati. An activity that continues in the following years: his drawings will appear on the most important Italian and foreign newspapers, such as the New Yorker, the Frankfurter Allgemeine, the New York Review of Books, the Guardian, El Pais and others. In 1984 he arrived in La Repubblica with which he still collaborates today. His portraits - especially of cultural figures - become the subject of numerous volumes and exhibitions held in Italy and abroad. In the last two decades his activity has been concentrating more and more on landscape painting witnessed by public exhibitions at Palazzo Lanfranchi di Pisa (Nature, 2002), at the "Osvaldo Licini" Contemporary Art Gallery in Ascoli Piceno (Sedendo e Mirando, 2009) ), at Palazzo Fava in Bologna and at Palazzo Ducale di Urbino (On Terra, 2015), at the Italian Institute of Culture in Tokyo (Fragments of Landscape, 2016). In 2010 a large exhibition at the Museo dell'Ara Pacis in Rome entitled Lineamenti, offers a pictorial synthesis of its two main forms of expression, landscape and portrait. In 2013 the anthological volume The landscapes was published by Adelphi. A part of the works contained in the volume constitute an exhibition hosted by the MART of Rovereto the following year.
