A work that, on the one hand, bears witness to Bendini's faithfulness to the themes of the sign and the light, on which he founded his painting at the beginning of the fifties - when all the most attentive critics, including Arcangeli, Calvesi, Emiliani, Barilli, Tassi and Argan, could perceive his "candid, lonely primogeniture" in a story that was moving beyond the informal art of the Po valley, towards a more abstract art. On the other hand, though he remained faithful to his fundamental vocation, towards the end of his career Bendini was more involved in his research, discovering a light that became increasingly more immediate, pacey, and dramatic.

The exhibition gives an account of his latest work, never exhibited before so extensively, after receiving a positive response from the public and critics in New York, at the RH Contemporary Art Gallery, in one of its very recent openings.
