Salvo (Salvatore Mangione, Leonforte, 22 May 1947 – Turin, 12 September 2015), was an Italian artist.
Salvo moved from Sicily to Turin in 1956, where he carried out conceptual research initially similar to that of Arte Povera and artists such as Sol LeWitt, Robert Barry and Joseph Kosuth, with whom he entered in relation. 1973 is the year of the “return to painting”, already practiced in the very first years of training, which at the beginning of the Seventies was to be considered as an unconventional choice. Salvo does not conceive of painting as an antithesis to the language of conceptual art and, throughout a fifty-year career, he carries out personal research, in constant dialogue with the past.
