Three volumes which tell the artistic story of a great master of our times who wants, through his OntoArte, give a signal of a new aesthetic humanism.

“When I had the occasion to meet Antonio Meneghetti, I understood that, for the very first time, I was not standing in front of a painter or an artist; the person I had in front of me was a genius of art"
Avv. Francesco de Benedetta
AIAM President (International Academy of Modern Art), 2001

“The two centuries
of Italian Renaissance
were the epicentre
of the dimension
of sublime in art for man.
The third millennium
must recreate a new birth of art,
as a lay, humanistic commitment,
which puts man back
at the centre of beauty,
intelligence and vital fulfilment”

Antonio Meneghetti
