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.
