RAGGHIANTI E LONGHI IN UNA LETTERA A PAOLA BAROCCHI

 

Emanuele Pellegrini

 

 

In 1986 Paola Barocchi wrote a letter to Carlo Ludovico Ragghianti asking information about Ragghianti's archive. In his reply to Paola Barocchi, rich in comments on the beginning of his activity and on Italian art criticism between WWI and WWII, Ragghianti attached some original letters of Roberto Longhi, dating from '30s and '40s. Ragghianti added some comments to those letters, offering a very subjective interpreta- tion of that cultural context, thus transforming a simple reply in a valuable insight not only on his relation- ship with Longhi, but more in general on art criticism during Fascism.
