Commemorative plaque Alberto Savinio

Commemorative plaque placed on the facade of the house where Alberto Savinio lived in 39 Via Bruno Buozzi, Rome, on 20 May 2013
Sixty years after the passing of Alberto Savinio in May, 1952, the Municipality of Rome has honoured the artist with a commemorative plague placed on the façade of the house in which he lived and worked for the last years of his life. The artist contributed greatly to twentieth century culture through his polyhedric work as a writer, painter and musician. Present at the ceremony, together with a large gathering of people from Rome’s cultural milieu, were daughter and son Angelica and Ruggero Savinio, and Umberto Broccoli, Superintendent of Cultural Heritage of the Municipality of Rome.
