«The eyes of Fusi's characters attract the viewers for their limpid clearness that allow us to see their feelings, tensions, and fears» (Vittorio Sgarbi)

Danilo Fusi was born in Scandicci (Florence) in 1940. He participated in the circle of painters who created the group "Come pittura" [Like painting], active at the historical Galleria Inquadrature by Marcello Innocenti. His early paintings immediately featured sumptuous, elegant and calibrated figures. By introducing inconsistent elements of anti-classic and anti-pretty details, Fusi’s painting portrays the perception of anachronism, the alienation from everyday life. Since the early 1970’s, the art critics Pier Paolo Castellucci, Tommaso Paloscia and Dino Pasquali supported the activity of this Florentine artist, inaugurating a frequent series of exhibitions that has lasted until our days. He had already exhibited his work in Florence, La Spezia, Bologna, Modena, Parma, Padua, Verona, Naples, and Rome, when in 1977 he was invited by Armando Nocentini to take part in the Premio del Fiorino, in Palazzo Strozzi. In 1979 he joined the manifesto "Foto di gruppo" presented by Pier Carlo Santini, with Del Testa, Nigiani, and Cantini.

In the 1980’s, Renzo Biasion included him in the “Bolaffi 1980”. That decade proved even more fruitful for Fusi, who was included in solo and collective art exhibits in Damascus (Syria), Mantua, Palermo, Barcelona, Madrid, Turin, and Lucca. In 1986 he was invited by Tommaso Paloscia to participate in the exhibit “Ab antiquo” at the Sala d'Arme in Palazzo Vecchio, and by Renato Barilli at the exhibit “Firenze per l'arte contemporanea”[Florence for Contemporary Art], who asked him to paint a piece for the Museum of Contemporary Art that was under construction at the time. That same year the exhibit “Danilo Fusi. L’irrealtà della pittura” [Irreality in Painting] was organized in Trento. In 1987 Giorgio Celli introduced Fusi at the Ghirlandina Gallery in Modena, followed by important

portant thematic exhibits such as “Il museo dei musei” [The Museum of Museums] in Palazzo Strozzi in 1989, presented by Federico Zeri; in 1989,”10 Peintres Italiens” in Sevran; “La devolution et l’antique” in Paris; “Bicentenario della Rivoluzione francese”[Bicentenary of the French Revolution] in St. Ouen, Pantin, Firenze, Certaldo, and Scandicci.

In the 1990s his work was exhibited in Tokyo, Barcelona, Nice, Wolfsburg (Germany), Mantua, Lagenfeld (Austria), Rouen and Chalon (France). In 1997, Giorgio Di Genova presented Brancolini, Fusi, Gerico and Nigiani as the “Quattro pittori dello sguardo cristallino” [Four painters with a crystalline gaze]. In that period, thanks to Samuele Mazza, lively creator of original festivals of art and fashion, he participated in exhibitions in Milan (“Il Reggi Secolo” and “Scarperentola”), Genoa, London, New York (“Cinderella's revenge”), and San Paolo in Brazil.

The year 2000 opened with an itinerant exhibition (Carpi; Bari at ExpoArte; Padua, Museo San Rocco; Pavia, Museo dell'Annunciata; Florence, Palazzo Vecchio; Pavullo, Palazzo Ducale; Firenze, Limonaia di Villa Strozzi) organized by Giorgio Segato and titled “Navigazione ultima. Quattro itinerari dell'immagine dentro l'Uomo di Dante: Brancolini, Fusi, Gerico, Nigiani” [The last navigation. Four itineraries in the image inside Dante’s Man: Brancolini, Fusi, Gerico, Nigiani]

Several solo and collective exhibit will follow.
