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 Milano fili 50x70cm carta

    Monday 1st March 2021 – Wires

    Last week I did a meeting with some students of eighth grade. The purpose was to tell them about my work and I received a loto of questions, like: “Was it difficult for you to choose high school? How was this passion born? Have you ever had doubts or difficult moments about this choice of life? What is the greatest gratification of your job?”. The first part of the meeting was a dialogue on these questions, then at a certain […]

    Lunedì 22 febbraio 2021 – Parking

    La preparazione della mostra Open Space nel 2019 era stato un momento molto significativo per il mio percorso artistico, perché venivo dall’esperienza di opere sul tema della linea d’orizzonte della riviera adriatica e mi chiedevo come potere continuare ed esplorare questo mondo della linea. Fu decisivo aprirmi al dialogo con Giuseppe Frangi, il curatore: gli feci vedere le opere della serie Parking e lui mi invitò a farne diversi, puntando solo sul colore e la linea. Il risultato di questo […]

    2020 Airport 20x20cm olio su tela

    Monday 15th February 2021 – Airport

    This small 20x20cm painting depicts the Malpensa airport at the first light of dawn. The most intense light is in the background, in that light with the presence of blue, which is a prelude to the arrival of day. That intense light that awakens, also creates that play of light and shadow between the two airplanes on the right. The cadmium yellow line indicates the direction. Of all the lines on the track, I focused only on it just to […]

    2020 Faro bianco 20x20cm olio su tela

    Monday 8th February 2021 – The White Lighthouse

    The white lighthouse is one of the most significant symbols of the port of Rimini. This painting well embodies the Rimini that I feel inside when it is winter, the one that I like the most! The preparation of the background of the canvas helped me a lot, a base with neutral colors like gray and earths, which then allowed me with a few touches of a palette knife and brush to bring out the structure of the port. Technique […]

    2020 Duomo 100x180cm olio su tela

    Monday 1st February 2021 – Milan’s Cathedral

    The act of painting the Milan Cathedral, especially in the large format like in this 100x180cm canvas, is always a very intense experience, because the rhythm is sometimes really hectic. The strength of the purple color in the lower part makes it all very dramatic. I was surprised by the suspended position of the wires on the left side of the sky: sometimes I too feel myself like I am suspended around the corner, just to see something that strikes […]

    2020 Attracchi 100x50cm olio su tela

    Monday 25th January 2021 – Moorings

    The port is my favourite place: walking far and wide and seeing the reflections of the ropes in the water is a sensation that always arouses so much tranquility. In this painting the boats are stationary, everything is mirrored because the water is very clear and my eyes always fall there, in those physical strings that come towards me. Their line breaks that apparent calm and creates a feeling of expectation, of something that is about to happen in that […]

    2020 San Siro 80x80cm olio su tela

    Monday 18th January 2021 – San Siro

    Every time I walk near the San Siro stadium, especially during the day, it always has a certain effect. It is an architecture that I really like, and then it has many lines and threads that intersect in the square in front, which remind me of the beginnings of my journey in Milan. In these artworks on the San Siro stadium the theme of the line is central, as is the color, which helps me to give strength and dynamism […]

    2020 Duomo 80x80cm olio su tela

    Monday 11th January 2021 – Milan Cathedral

    Each painting has its own history and its own time of execution. In this painting about the Milan Cathedral, it took me a long time to come to a conclusion. In the lower part of the painting, there is the best part of me, because there are masses of color that collide with each other, created with very direct movements of the palette knife and with the color rendered liquid. Each part of the work is in a certain sense […]
