  • Renato Poggioli, author of the seminal 1962 The Theory of the Avant-garde, was teaching in Paris and America in these years. He continued to publish a number of articles on various issues including the Russian avant-garde which was his main area of interest.

  • In Italy the publication Il Travaso slowly closes between 1959-62. Since 1900, the publication had produced political satire that was without any partisan political affiliation. Interestingly the publication 'Panorama' was established in 1962 as an Italian version of America's TIME magazine.
