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 […]

Monday 18th February 2019 – Milan Cathedral

It was a long time since I wanted to paint a large Cathedral’s Square with people like this, measuring 200x200cm.

This square often strikes me when I go through it because it is full of history and full of timeless charm. I wanted to make this picture like a […]

Monday 10th December 2018 – Skyline

In this work I portrayed the sky of Milan above the Branca tower and the Cathedral. The architectural structures are small and not too detailed because I like to highlight the vast and colorful grandeur of the sky, as if it were a great sea. With little touches of spatula I inserted some lights in the middle of the buildings: I like even if with a few taps enter the life of the city. The December issue of the magazine Arbiter has […]
