WORK

Nasce a Perugia nel 1910, e si forma all'Istituto d'arte ed all'Accademia di Belle Arti della città. Segue i corsi romani dell'Istituto per il Restauro nel 1932, venendo in contatto con Gerardo Dottori. Sempre in quel periodo, una delle sue prime opere, Dinamismo di cavalli viene notata da Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, che gli spalanca le porte dell'ambiente futurista. Fu un eccelso restauratore e insegnante che, seguendo apparentemente il linguaggio aeropittorico del suo concittadino, il più anziano Gerardo Dottori, uno dei protagonisti del Futurismo, seppe invece dare un'impronta di originalità al suo linguaggio futurista. Tant'è che F.T. Marinetti himself, seeing his dynamism of horses of the early thirties, decreed his entry into his movement. His avant-garde painting is imbued with mysticism and lyricism like that of Doctors for the Umbrian-Franciscan environment common to the two experiences, but Bruschetti's analyticity, chromatic clarity and formalism soon reveal themselves. He will participate in the Marinetti group in all the most important exhibitions in Italy and abroad (Venice Biennials, Rome Quadrennials, exhibitions in Berlin, Istanbul). Meanwhile, he had established himself as one of the most qualified restorers in Italy, after having brilliantly attended the high school for restoration in Rome, and he too began teaching artistic subjects between Umbria and Lombardy. In 1941, together with the Dottori he signed the Umbrian Manifesto of aeropainting. After moving to Brugherio, in Lombardy, he proposed an anthological exhibition in 1975 at the Museum of Science and Technology in Milan.
