Vietri measures himself against this new reality, putting the sociological analysis in the background to focus on crucial political events and chronicles of ordinary violence. He seeks new modalities of expression. The collage through printed paper recounts disturbing and absurd events and above all recounts the bewilderment of those who helplessly witness them, ghostly figures, artificial faces that are substantiated by the same printed paper as the background. It also begins a new phase of reflection on the exploitation of energy sources.
Black and white and graphics
This period is characterized by many black and white pieces and graphics. They have topical subjects, such as the series dedicated to Spain, where demonstrators speak with the verses of R. Alberti, J. A. Goytisolo, J. R. Jiménez, L. Aragon, B. Brecht, or the poster with the dates of Italy’s great democratic achievements. Another crucial point is the eternal theme of human suffering.
