Alberto GIACOMETTI ( 1901 Borgonovo, Stampa -1966) was a Swiss sculptor, painter, draughtsman, and printmaker....."In every work of art the subject is primordial, whether the artist knows it or not. The measure of the formal qualities is only a sign of the measure of the artist's obsession with his subject; the form is always in proportion to the obsession."
