Published on the occasion of Step by Step – Un regard sur la collection d’un marchand d’art, the exhibition curated in 2019 by Cristiano Raimondi for the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco and featuring Fabrizio Moretti’s private—and curious—collection, this publication is the result of a remarkable collaboration between the NMNM and the Italian collector. Avoiding any kind of scholarly approaches, the book reveals new and unexpected similarities and comparisons between works of art as far ago as the fourteenth century and those from the present day. Focusing on the intrinsic beauty of their nature as objects, and following a non-linear sequencing that allows past and present to question one another, Step by Step aims to tell not just the story of how these works were created, but also to reveal the personal and spiritual cosmogony of their collector.
