Painting depicting a high band in red monochrome under which an inscription in italics is painted. Isgrò is one of the most significant artists of the group of visual poets; his research, in fact, turns to an art not only linked to visuality but also determined by conceptual interventions. Between the end of the sixties and the early seventies, the author made a cycle of works entitled "The red stories", where we often find references to Marx or other exponents of communist politics. The work, also known simply as "Alma", represents a lit and long-limbed canvas, where the red rectangle involves a total negation of the image, leaving the viewer to complete it, freeing the imagination uncontrollably, guided only by the "trace" lyricist that characterizes it. The canvas was exhibited at the 1st Biennial of the Progressive Museum of Contemporary Art in Livorno.
