Ugo La Pietra


Ugo La Pietra


Born in 1938, in Bussi sul Tirino, Pescara, Ugo La Pietra graduated from Milan’s Politecnico in 1964. In 1962  his artistic research attempts to clarify the relationship “individual-environment.” Within the framework of this process he develops knowledge tools (“models for understanding”) that seek to transform the traditional “artwork-viewer” relationship. He always acted inside and outside disciplines, describing himself as a “researcher in visual arts”; an unconventional and peculiar artist,  not easy to classify. Since 1960 he embraced different art movements with his researches. He spread his thoughts and experiences through an intense editorial and academic activity. Moreover he was a founding member of several groups, such as Gruppo del Cenobio, Gruppo Design Radicale and Global Tools, and promoter of many exhibitions that involved a great number of professionals (artists, designers and architects).
