MONDAY



But if the light falls, my heart remains there, If there is a thought that turns it on is to look for Monday...

Lucio Dalla, Lunedì

Since May 2015 every Monday I publish on my website (and share on my social) one of my artwork or anything that struck me: a reading, a song, an unexpected meeting. Why on Monday? Because on Monday all starts again, for better or for worse, like it or not, but it's better that way! Up with Monday, and with the life that comes to you anyway.

    2021 Fili II 80x120cm tecnica mista su tela

    Monday 10th May 2021 – Tram wires

    When I paint the sky, I don’t think so much about a specific moment: I physically throw myself into the painting, starting from the background. This working method, looking then at the final result, surprised me, because if I think too much about a precise image I get distracted and I’m too formal. Instead, if I start with myself and I throw the color to find that backlash that hit me, then then I can convey what I want. The […]

    2021 Fili 180x150cm tecnica mista su tela

    Monday 3rd May 2021 – Wires

    I would never have said to paint the city of Milan in the way you see: at the beginning of my arrival in this city, what dominated was despair, even if accompanied by the question of knowing what would be good for me. Now I look at this sky with light backgrounds, which make it feel fresh, and below the city, made up of continuous directions. The network of tram wires that overlooks the sky dictates the rhythm of this […]

    2021 Attracchi 20x20cm olio su tela

    Monday 26th April 2021 – Moorings

    A few days ago I had a dialogue with some students in Bologna, with whom I am preparing a very nice project in the Sant’Orsola hospital. A girl, starting from my works in the Moorings series, made this reflection that I wanted to share: “What is a bond? Everything that makes us better, everything that keeps us attached to life, but also what makes us die, which makes us desire the Beyond, which calls us to realize what we are, […]

    2021 Duomo 24x30cm olio su tela

    Monday 19th April 2021 – Duomo

    Last week I went to a client’s home to deliver one of my artworks on the Duomo. While I was setting up the work, we discussed the fact that whoever loves Milan, immediately think to the Duomo, to the Madonnina. Yes, there are also other symbolic places I would say “untouchable” such as Sant’Ambrogio, the San Siro stadium for sportsmen, Unicredit and the whole area of ​​Porta Garibaldi with the Isola district. But why the Duomo? I try to give […]

    2021 Fili 21x29,7cm tecnica mista su carta

    Monday 12th April 2021 – Wires

    When I start painting a subject in which I discover something interesting, I feel the urge to work a lot on it. To experiment you have to accept to make mistakes, to take risks, then among the many failed things, something is born for which I say: here is something beautiful, to be saved! And that’s how I proceed when I work. In this small work on paper I was very struck by the contrast between the blue of the […]

    2021 Piazza 5 Giornate 30x30cm tecnica mista su carta

    Monday 5th April 2021 – Piazza Cinque Giornate

    In this painting on paper I depicted a memorable glimpse of Piazza Cinque Giornate in Milan. I prepared a series of cards, all placed close together, and I cast the color on them, creating these explosions. Once the color has dried, I mentioned the tree, the building and the presence of the tram on the right that crosses the square. Finally, with a wet wiper with black color I inserted the wires into the sky. That is always a very […]

    2021 Fili Milano 100x150cm tecnica mista su tela

    Monday 29th March 2021- Milano Wires

    As I told you last week, in this period I am working on the skies and wires of Milan. In this painting my attention is entirely focused on the breadth of the sky. To begin this work I started from the canvas on the ground, throwing several layers of different acrylic colors very diluted with water. While the color was still wet, I dried the color and gave body to the clouds with some paper and rags. Once the sky […]

    2021 Duomo 30x60cm olio su tela

    Monday 22nd March 2021 – Duomo

    This view of the Duomo, through the chromatic intensity of the colors, gives a lot of vitality to the square. The tram wires overlook the central part of the painting, and the white marble of the Duomo facade brings out the crackling colors of cadmium yellows, violets and intense Prussian blues. The verticality of the Madonnina, which stands out and dominates the scene, amazes me in this work. I really hope this is the last moment of lockdown, so that […]
