In 1977, Boetti started a series of works depicting a wide range of airplane models. Two preliminary Aerie (“planes” in Italian)—a black-ink drawing and a watercolor—were made by Guido Fuga under precise instructions by the artist. Also made in collaboration with Fuga is Aerei (1977), a large-scale three-panel watercolor and pencil version.
