As of 2020, the Société Internationale des Amis de Cicéron as launched a collaboration with UGO NESPOLO, an artist who works across a variety of media. Nespolo is an artist whose polemical interventions and constant focus on the moral and intellectual integrity of contemporary art have made him “stand out from the crowd”, to borrow his expression. His work is characterised by lively effects, folk and distinctive, rooted in a profound engagement with humanistic culture. The artist has already lent «COL» his expertise, producing a dynamic and modern re-interpretation of the well-known bust of Cicero from the Capitoline Museum – an illustration that as of 2020 will appear in the journal’s title page.
