Around Jewish Art
The seemingly effortless process by which a suitable title is selected for an encyclopedia such as this became exponentially more complex and difficult as I explored the available options and heard the mounting arguments from all sides. Finding the right mix of words was crucial. After pondering the subject for several months in an effort to arrive at the best possible title, I finally opted for "Around Jewish Art."
Valenzi, Maurizio Birth - Death : 1909- Nationality : Tunisian
Valenzi studied painting in Tunis and first worked under the influence of Cubism and Surrealism. He then exhibited his works in Tunis, Paris and Rome where he befriended Carlo Levi. Valenzi went in 1937 to Paris, where he completed his studies and met Tristan Tzara, Paul Eluard and Aragon. He was arrested in 1941 in Tunisia because of his anti-Fascist activities and tortured by members of the Vichy Police before being sentenced to life imprisonment. Valenzi however managed to flee to Italy in 1944 and played a leading political role as a member of the Italian Communist Party. He then became a member of the Italian Senate in 1952, as well as Mayor of Naples in 1975 before being elected to the European Parliament in 1984.
