Getulio Alviani (Udine, 1939 - Milan 2018) is one of the most Italian representatives of the Arte Programmata and international Nove Tendencije movements, and of correlated kinetic-optical research. From the early sixties his “linee luce” (light lines) were iconic and recognisable, prototypes of the milled aluminium surfaces with a vibrating texture that later became his signature. Characterized by transparencies and kaleidoscopic effects that vary according to the angle of vision and the point of incidence of light, these objects are rigorously designed to be produced in series: the surface, electrically milled with pre-determined and programmed precision, changes continuously according to the angle of vision and the point of incidence of light creating ever-different shapes. As of the following decade, he also explored chromatic phenomenology and the realisation of three-dimensional sculptures based on mathematical formulas.
