“Though aware of just how hard it will be to attain the distant goal I have glimpsed, I am sustained by the certainty that the path I am following is the right one. I repudiate nothing in my past. Consciousness has always guided me in my work and I am comforted by the knowledge that in all my endeavours, even in the moments of greatest uncertainty, my personality has always managed to come through.” Morandi, G. (18 February 1928). ‘L’ Assalto. [Morandi 1894-1964, MC Bandera and R. Miracco-2008]. Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna, 268.
