This part of the course aims to investigate two particular moments in which the process of giving title to works by Italian artists underwent an important evolution: the transition from titles of visualist or existentialist background (in the 1950s) to titles of a more complex conceptual identity (in the 1960s); then the return to thematically evocative and literary titles in the painting of the late 1970s and the 1980s
