The Collages series began after the trip in the United States and was developed up to the 1980s. Using a wide range of material (canvas, paper, fabric) and with the dripping technique, works like the 3Ds are based on the combined effect of the images, which in this case are lying on the same plane. The final picture, a “cold reconstruction of an impulsive act” (Remo Bianco), is the result of the assemblage of the different small squares in which the same work has been formerly broken down. Often “tessere” (pieces) of different works are included in the same Collage, thus increasing the combination possibilities of creating images and giving an open character to the picture, starting from its constitutive elements.

The fragmented character of the pictures of this series has identified this cycle as painting in opposition to the "Informal Art", of which Collages contrast the gestural violence and the rapid and biomorphic ductus” (A. Altamira 2001).
