Monday 11th October – Ring Road

This painting on the Milan ring road, with the wires of the cables accompanying the direction of the road, reminded me of a song very dear to me, which I listened to for the first time just when, as soon as I arrived in Milan, I discovered its wires. This is the song by Lucio Dalla “Le rondini”, which has a moving and beautiful opening that says: “I would like to enter the wires of a radio / And fly […]

The subject of the railways is really something that strikes me, for the structures and for the speed created by the lines of the tracks. In this painting there is in the foreground a diagonal with an iron railing of a bridge, which makes us be there, as spectators of the scene. Then there are those three vertical poles, which balance the push towards the horizon given by the tracks. The white spaces of the docks are wanted, just to […]
