Summary This catalogue for a show at Tornabuoni Art in Milan sheds new light and offers previously unpublished material on the close relationship between Alighiero Boetti and his longtime Afghan assistant and friend, Salman Ali. They met in Kabul in 1971, and travelled to Rome two years later. Their initial collaboration rapidly evolved into a far more intense relationship: not simply as assistant, but as a close member of the family. This exhibition features the private collection of works given to Ali by Boetti, and substantial photographic and documentary archives that illuminate their close friendship, working relationship, travels, and everyday life. Included here is a biographical essay by Ali, in addition to texts by Clino Trini Castelli, Bruno Cora and Giorgio Colombo.
