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 […]

Monday 3rd February 2020 – Central Station

In this painting I am inside the train, and this is the moment before it enters the gallery of Milan Central Station.

Experimenting is a necessary feature to grow and try to enrich the theme of […]

Francesco Zavatta Trenord 50x105cm tecnica mista su carta 2019

Monday 25th November 2019 – Trenord

The Central Station of Milan is a place of transit, where memories and moments of waiting mix very quickly. In this triptych painted in oil on paper, I deliberately created those empty detachments between one sheet and another just because they conveyed to me a feeling of detachment, of tearing and at the same time of breath. The central signage, so white and well defined, is the direction towards which my eye tends and strikes me as all the lines […]
