2020 Duomo 60x180cm olio su tela

Monday 29th June 2020 – Cathedral

This Monday’s Duomo starts from a provocation that we faced in a dinner few days ago: Can art be a way of experiencing work? To implement – not only represent – a new way of working? Can it still “employ” the society? These questions are taken from an intervention by Francesco Fornasieri that you can read here. In this article the author reflects on the fact that, during the Middle Ages, the construction of large cathedrals including the Milan Cathedral […]

Monday 28th October 2019 – San Siro

The San Siro stadium is a historical monument that is part of the history of Milan, it is an icon. At San Siro, I am very struck by the strong impact that you get when are in front of him: as you get closer, the lines of the structures appear more and more dynamic and light, and it is this feeling that I tried to make using tempera. In my opinion art is like sport: made of tension, disappointments, satisfactions, […]
