Accordi/Accardi

The Galleria Valentina Bonomo in the Jewish ghetto presents an Accordi/Accardi, an exhibition by Italian abstract Carla Accardi who died in Rome a year ago aged 89.

The 12 pieces on show were created specially for the Galleria Valentina Bonomo, and represent the very last work created by Accardi.

Originally from Trapani in Sicily, Accardi moved to Rome in 1946 and quickly became a leading figure in the city's avant-garde circles during the post-war years.

Together with her husband Antonio Sanfilippo she formed the Marxist-inspired Gruppo Forma 1 with other artists such as Giulio Turcato, Piero Dorazio and Pietro Consagra.

In addition to her art work, Accardi co-founded the Rivolta Femminile group in 1970 with fellow feminist activists Carla Lonzi and Elvira Banotti.

Accardi exhibited in major art institutions around the world and lived on Via del Babuino in central Rome, where she painted until the end.
