When the Commissione Autentiche (Committee for the registration of Depero’s artworks) run by Museo Depero (1973-1979) was closed, the Heirs of the artist felt the responsibility to deal with the works and the image of the artist and looked for a collaboration with Museo Depero.
Between the Heirs of Depero and Mart, responsible for the Depero Museum, has been recently reached an agreement that should lead to a future collaboration, precisely in the artist’s interest, with the hope of converging in a shared dealing policy of protection and estimation of the artist.
According to the foresaid agreement Mart will deal mainly with the lot of works given by the artist to the City of Rovereto in 1960, while the general cataloguing and the registrations are competence of Depero’s Archive. Maurizio Scudiero, who has been studying Depero since the Seventies and dealing professionally with the artist, collecting data on his artworks since the half of the Eighties, was entrusted with the general cataloguing of Depero’ works and is responsible for the Depero’s Archive.
Anyone else delivering oral or written statements on Fortunato Depero’s artworks, acts in personal capacity, and such opinions are not acknowledged by Depero’s Archive.
