In 1973, when Franco made a meticulous sum of his work, the Grignani archive counted something like 13,000 experiments and about 800 paintings, not counting the hundreds of advertising works and the covers for books and magazines. [from the Italian-French magazine “arte e società”, 6/7, 1973]
Therefore, this is only a very small selection, limited to what the web can offer today.

“I wanted the eyes of others to be educated to see through the inter-cerebral world of impulses the sensory way suited to modern man. So art enters life as a support to the problems of visual culture, because the man, being no longer filled with notions, can formulate judgments, indicate choices, enjoy different aspects, have a more creative imagination, doubling the value of life in the exaltation of the imaginary.”
