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.

    Monday 30th November 2020 – Duomo

    Recently I thought of something that at the beginning of my arrival in Milan I would never have said: some glimpses of buildings are actually starting to enter me, no longer as a hostile presence, but as something strangely positive. The work on the lines in the series on airports, parking lots and stations is certainly helping me to let the buildings enter as dynamic elements, and with a force of color in which they are one with the movement […]

    Monday 23rd November 2020 – Central Station

    When I decided to paint this Milan Central Station, I asked myself what I wanted to aim for and the answer was very immediate: to convey the feeling of returning home. I found an interesting interpretation in the fast movement of the rails: the light rises towards the architecture of the Station in these oval shapes, as if they were open shells which one enters to stay sheltered. The choice of blue is linked to the fact that it is […]

    Monday16th November 2020 – Moorings in the lagoon

    The painting of this Monday comes from a picture of the lagoon seen from Chioggia, because the structure of these three “briccole” struck me very much. It is a restful painting due to the colors of the water, but at the same time it has a dramatic atmosphere in the movement of the ropes that dock with the poles. The ropes are as if they came out of the picture, from us, like holds in this stormy sea we are […]

    Monday 9th November 2020 – Duomo Subway Exit

    Last week, as I was about to leave the studio, the lights were already off, and I stopped to look at this work, Duomo Subway Exit which was just painted. I was moved because, even with the surrounding lights already off, the marble of the white facade of the Duomo gave off a very beautiful, discreet but present light. There I realized that the painting was finished! Another important aspect of the work is the pose of the person with […]

    Monday 2nd November 2020 – Malpensa

    Painting Malpensa today, with the covid-19 that never stops touching our lives, makes me want even more to give my contribution through what I see and discover gradually. The lights of the sky of this period, at sunset, really make me rejoice and in this work there is a hint of those warm colors. The structure of the work is determined by the red line, which indicates the direction to go. The planes are at a standstill, a situation we […]

    Monday 26th October 2020 – Connections

    This weekend I spent two days in Rimini with some friends who wanted to see my BACKUP exhibition with me, at Zamagni Arte. It was a really beautiful and very interesting moment because I realized even more the relevance of these works with these surreal hours in which everything seems to collapse. Everything jumps, what remains? The connections with the people who love me, the human relationships that help me to be stable, to stay in front of the things […]

    Monday 19th October 2020 – Moorings

    This Saturday I was invited to  a charity event organized by Think Soluzioni Creative  within the fabulous Suite & Atelier Lake Como. With the lake in front of me, it seemed natural for me to paint an artwork about it. Starting from the blank canvas, I created this oil on canvas during the day,: Moorings, 50x50cm, oil on canvas. It was also interesting for me to see people’s reactions while I was painting. The best moment was when I had finished […]

    Monday 12th October 2020 – Duomo’s Square

    In recent years, my research on the Duomo has expanded. Before I almost always concentrated on the Madonnina that overlooked the intertwining of the tram wires. Then, I enlarged on the entire facade of the Duomo, always crossed by the tram wires. Now I also like to paint the square as a whole, with the absolute novelty of the people walking through it. In this painting the colors are those of dawn, the awakening that leads people to cross the […]
