- Where: Genoa, Associazione ‘La Serenissima’
An example of the often abused comparison between art and nature: Novaresio’s and Tampieri’s paintings were displayed in the halls of the association ‘La Serenissima’, together with the works of the flower painter Podestà. No photographs were found, but the theme of the exhibition suggests that the paintings presented here (certainly not Novaresio’s most representative works) were mainly figurative.

In 1971, Novaresio moved to the small town of Godiasco (Pavia), away from the chaos of Rome: he rented an old mill and turned it into his studio.
Three years later, he exhibited again in Genoa at the Galleria Il Punto: this large retrospective traced the artist’s career from the 1940’s up to the series of paintings entitled 8 proposte per un manifesto contro la guerra [8 proposals for an anti-war manifesto], which testified the atrocities of war. He then held a traveling exhibition on the motorship Irpinia, which called at Alexandria, Beirut, Kaifa, Istanbul and Athens.
