The research addresses a previously unknown segment of the journalist and art dealer Pietro Maria Bardi’s trajectory by highlighting the centrality of the publishing issue in his activity as an organizer of artistic culture.

Abstract

The research addresses a previously unknown segment of the journalist and art dealer Pietro Maria Bardi’s trajectory by highlighting the centrality of the publishing issue in his activity as an organizer of artistic culture. Starting from the letters exchanged with the publisher Valentino Bompiani from 1946 – date of Bardi’s arrival to Brazil, together with Lina Bo – to the mid-1950s, the paper traces the common projects, between Italy and South America, in a transnational perspective, thus opening new insights into Bardi’s role within the coeval illustrated art publishing industry and better focusing the planning of his early Brazilian years at the head of the Museu de Arte de São Paulo’s modernist project.
A pesquisa aborda um segmento até então desconhecido da trajetória do jornalista e marchand Pietro Maria Bardi, destacando a centralidade do tema editorial em sua atividade como organizador da cultura artística. A partir das cartas trocadas com o editor Valentino Bompiani de 1946 - data da chegada de Bardi ao Brasil, juntamente com Lina Bo - até o início da década de 1950, este artigo traça os projetos comuns, entre Itália e a América do Sul, numa perspectiva transnacional, abrindo portanto novos insights sobre o papel de Bardi dentro da indústria editorial de arte ilustrada daquele momento e detendo-se no planejamento de seus primeiros anos no Brasil à frente do projeto modernista do Museu de Arte de São Paulo.
