2020 Duomo 100x180cm olio su tela

Monday 1st February 2021 – Milan’s Cathedral

The act of painting the Milan Cathedral, especially in the large format like in this 100x180cm canvas, is always a very intense experience, because the rhythm is sometimes really hectic. The strength of the purple color in the lower part makes it all very dramatic. I was surprised by the suspended position of the wires on the left side of the sky: sometimes I too feel myself like I am suspended around the corner, just to see something that strikes […]

2020 Duomo 80x80cm olio su tela

The tram wires in Piazza Duomo in Milan often catch my attention, because I always see them so thin that they are lost in the white of the facade. Moreover, they convey to me a sense of fragility, of smallness that makes me want to always look at them. The color of the sky in this Cathedral is very pacifying, as if all those whirling and vital movements are embraced by the colored sky. The yellow color from the Madonnina […]
