Faces of an invisible artist Ida Fuà:
"Art is everything that men call art," says the philosopher Dino cheese, what is recognized as art. There is, however, an art that remains hidden. It is the product of men, artists, forced to make yourself invisible. An art that, even if obscured, becomes a form of resistance, a claim of identity, an escape from the compulsion of reality and of the domain for which you might not even exist, an attempt to express themselves with what is still allowed. IDA Fuà is a Jewish artist, lived during the years of fascism and of the racial laws; IDA Fuà invisible is an artist, a woman who had to hide herself with her art. From the rich family Lolli and wife of Charles Fuà, Director of the village of Crespi d'Adda, Ida has spent most of his life in Torno, a small town on Lake Como, where he sought refuge and protection in her lonely villa surrounded by greenery. Here, in his Studio overlooking the Lake, he produced most of his works: sculptures depicting faces, torsos and particular human profiles that appear to an aesthetic expression of his own personal tragedy. To hit with greater force are probably the eyes of these figures: are eyes, eyes that gaze missed maybe dream of elsewhere. No see the spectator, no claims with him a direct relationship, as in indicating an inability to communicate, to gain experience of the other. In omitting, however, the gesture seems meaningful and full of emotion, returning from last a sign of hope: in these eyes diverged transpires the desire to recover the gaze, to assert their will to exist, the right to be there.
