- Where: Genoa, Galleria Ranzini
Critics agreed that the exhibition was not entirely successful: among the causes, the absence of many artists, the inaccurate selection of the works and the lack of suitable prizes for the winners. However, many young artists were appreciated, including Novaresio, who displayed the painting Figura seduta [Sitting Figure].
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.
