Giovanni Pintori

Giovanni Pintori, a leading member of graphics and advertising in the twentieth century, was recognized and celebrated for his work in Italy and abroad. After his first approaches to art in Nuoro – where he, as a boy, spent hours and hours in the studios of the photographer Piero Pirari and, later, of the painter Giovanni Ciusa Romagna - and his academic studies in the early 1930s at the Higher Institute for Artistic Industries in Monza – where he was one of the members of the group of the "three Sardinians" with his friends Costantino Nivola (Orani) and Salvatore Fancello (Dorgali) -, his creative development was characterized by a leading role at Olivetti in Ivrea and by several awards and exhibitions of his projects in internationally renowned sites and museums. His approach to painting in the last ten years of his life was just the latest step of a coherent and varied itinerary, made of partnerships with large enterprises and visual intuitions, which were based on his idea that graphic arts and corporate communication were essential. In 2003, the Nuoro’s MAN Museum held the first retrospective exhibition of his works and a large selection of Pintori’s works, which were donated by his heirs, is included in the museum's permanent collection.
