The catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition held from 12 December 2003 to 1 February 2004, with the contribution of the City of Turin and the Piedmont Region, at the Accademia Albertina delle Belle Arti in Turin.

This volume aims to illustrate some of the most significant moments in Piero Martina’s artistic career, both through images of his works and through the testimony of his autograph writings and critical essays that deepen not only our knowledge of the artist but also his acquaintance with poets, critics and men of letters, which from the early 1930s extended over a period of forty years.

The photographic documentation of Martina’s work is divided into chronological and thematic sections: it opens with an oil on canvas entitled C.so San Maurizio and continues with Interno del Caffè Nazionale, paintings that show the artist’s pictorial exploration of her everyday environment, the Turin of the late 1930s.
