To Nannucci, content and form are of exactly the same value. Texts, shapes and their setting in a particular space originate in ongoing open processes of mutual diffusion. His spaces of colour and sensation are always also spaces of connotation and thought. The characters, words and sentences are transporting meaning; in concert with the fluorescent tubes radiating coloured light, the sentences are distributing meaning. They are triggers or references, rather than explanations and precise statements, they never assert. They rather state what cannot be refuted: ALL ART HAS BEEN CONTEMPORARY or inquire: WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT WHEN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ART. Consequently, his text pieces deal with the unsaid, or rather the unspeakable, and are mere thematic approximations.
