In 1983, Jørgen Haugen Sørensen was invited to show a large solo exhibition in Prato, a beautiful medieval and renaissance city. The city is known for its textile industry and is located near Florence in Italy.


It became a magnificent exhibition with banners hanging all over the city, a large poster and a catalog with the introduction of art critic and historian Enrico Crispolti. At that time, Haugen Sørensen exhibited large monumental sculptures in travertine erected in the city's public squares.
