On Friday, the students of Calder Classics journeyed to the studio of a gifted contemporary artist, Lorenzo Pezzatini. Lorenzo showed us his Filo, an abstract string of red, blue, and yellow, and explained its significance and beauty, which is so clearly depicted in his pieces. Throughout his life, Lorenzo Pezzatini faced many challenges and successes that are not only shown in his pieces, but also in his Filo. The Filo became his own language, one that inspires all of his creations.
