One quality that clearly emerges from Giacomelli, as a man and as an artist, is his generosity: a disinterested, natural, almost unconscious generosity, which is probably what motivated the bequest he made in 1984 in favour of the Municipality of Lonato del Garda.
Some of the works in this collection are accomplished examples of the unique style that still distinguishes him today: the sculptural effect and pictorial composition of La fotomodella (1955); the dazzling black and white of the boy in Scanno; the young seminarians shot from above who seem suspended in the void; the face of an elderly woman emerging at the base of an image where dark fifigures dance, a photograph invented to portray “the face of death”; the stark contrasts in the images of the series “Presa di coscienza sulla natura” [Awareness of Nature] from 1976-1984, rigorous metaphors for the pure and primitive relationship Giacomelli desired between man and nature.
