Opere 2019 Francesco Zavatta

Monday 30th December 2019 – The Artworks of the Year

A year of work is always nice to remember and here I get a little moved! A fantastic year full of new works that I would never have imagined and an exhibition, OPEN SPACE, which concretely opened me to new scenarios such as the parkings, the airports and Milan Central Station, which has once again become the protagonist. Many meetings with people, that it is you who are reading me and you are many and it fills me with joy […]

2019 Duomo Milano 25x35cm olio su tela

Monday 4th November 2019 – Duomo

Monday 18th March 2019 – The Square’s Breath

The square is a meeting place, where everyone can take a walk, with his own thoughts. I like to see the light-heartedness of the people who pass through Piazza Duomo in Milan, so welcoming. Some figures are still, others in movement, everyone goes his own way. The pavement of the first floor looks like water that unites and makes the atmosphere alive. Change always brings something new and accepting change is tiring, but liberating because, as in this work, I […]
