The essay analyzes Gianni bertini's contribution to the definition and development of mec-art. Through a deep research into archive and photographic materials, the author reconstructed the peculiar techniques used by the artist, as well as several of his iconographic sources. After introducing mec-art and how its inception corresponded to Bertini's return to pop-like iconic materials, the essay addresses a few aspects of the artist's mec career: the relationship with serialization and the creation of variants; the imagery and the most recurring themes (considered in their historical development); the main exhibitions featuring Bertini's mec-art work; the continuous presence of mec-art in the following phases of the artist's career.
