Colour and Movement - the life of Claudio Alcorso

Colour and Movement - the life of Claudio Alcorso
Colour and Movement: the Life of Claudio Alcorso tells the story of one man's journey from a luxurious life in elite Rome, to that of a bankrupted tenant on Morilla Estate in Tasmania, where he watched as the winery he created transformed into MONA.

This biography portrays a humanist, entrepreneur, patron of the arts and conservationist. Following his flight from fascism and anti-Semitism, Alcorso joined the leading edge of Australia's 20th century multicultural and artistic awakening; a champion of textiles and the arts, pioneer of Tasmania's cool climate wine industry, and architect of Hobart's modern cultural blueprint.
