This dense retrospective volume tells the history of the gallery called Banco, opened in Brescia in 1973 by Massimo Minini, and today known as the Gallery Minini. Rather than present a chronological narrative, the book is comprised of a series of flashbacks that give a sense of the gallery’s activity driven, influenced and shaped by many different forces. Across 500 delirious pages, it collects a selection of archival material, such as photos, invitations and a stunning amount of personal correspondence, not to mention examples of the numerous artists, styles and artworks presented throughout the gallery’s many seasons, from its quiet beginnings to the present moment.
