“The knowledge that Moretti has of the past is profound but unnatural. His relationship with contemporary works of art is direct. His collection reveals fascinatingly the inner conflict of a collector who wants to make schizophrenia of taste part of his identity. In Fabrizio Moretti, the Dr. Jekyll of old art and the Mr. Hyde of contemporary art coexist.”
– Francesco Bonami
Published following the eponymous exhibition curated by Cristiano Raimondi at the Nouveau Musée de Monaco – Villa Sauber in 2020 and featuring Fabrizio Moretti’s private collection, Step by Step represents a journey through Western artistic culture, from the Gothic period to the experiments of the last ten years, passing through Mannerism and the Baroque. Focusing on the intrinsic beauty of their nature as objects, and following a non-linear sequence that allows past and present to question one another, the book reveals new and unexpected similarities between works of art as far ago as the fourteenth century and those from the present day. Texts by Francesco Bonami, Tommaso Montanari, and Cristiano Raimondi. Published by Mousse Publishing.
