Ferruccio Vecchi (1894-?). Italian sculptor.
A forgotten sculptor, I would say, deleted with a strong dose of anger, if not hate. The reason? He was fascist. The usual spiteful critics full of anger have covered him with insults, which I am not enumerating because they are all extremely imaginable (after all they do what they are paid for). To be honest this little Herculean figure emerging from Mussolini's head was not a good idea (I wonder where the work is over). I do not know when the work was created by the sculptor, but I know it was exhibited at the Venice Biennale 1940. I could have done thousands of examples, but I preferred to make a comparison between a work of the very famous Masson exhibited in the exhibition of Surrealists in Paris 1938 (the dummy of a naked woman with head stuck in a bird cage) and this so despised sculpture by Vecchi. I invite my readers to do their own considerations.
