The exit from the subway “Duomo” in Milan has something that always surprises me. While I was painting it, I realized that I had drawn too many lines, which disturbed the attention. So I simplified the whole composition by focusing on the three red lines of the handrail and on the vertical blue one of the pole. It made me breathe, because I immediately felt that my sight was directed towards the Madonnina. I have been working on this theme of the Duomo subway exit for some years now, because it is a very fascinating situation: anyone is taken up by climbing the stairs to go in their own direction, and at a certain point they find themselves displaced in front of that Duomo.
Today is my birthday, and I am pleased to remember it because I am happy to be there. The more time passes, the more I realize the good journey done. How many things still to be discovered!
I thank you for the way you support me and the affection you give me. A hug to everyone and happy Monday!
