Guglielmo Sansoni, known as Tato (Bologna, 1896-Rome, 1974), was an Italian Futurist artist, one of the first to distinguish himself as an aeropainter.
We propose one of his larger works, "Paratroopers", a work of the 40s, 160x120 cm, oil on canvas, which represents the landing of the paratroopers during the Second World War.
In his paintings Tato pours out his great passion for flying, fueled by travels in Europe, Africa, America, and by his admiration for Italo Balbo and his ocean transitions.
Tato's production should be read "across the board", the result of a multifaceted activity that for about 60 years saw him as a painter, sculptor, writer, essayist, ceramist, photographer and set designer.
