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 Piazza Duomo 150x180cm tecnica mista su tela

In this small work on the Duomo (20x30cm) there is all the openness of the Lombard sky, into the veils of the clouds. In the lines of the tram on the […]

Piazzale Loreto 112x140cm, tecnica mista su carta 2012

Monday 6th April 2020 – Loreto Square Milano

In these days seeing empty cities is truly surreal and at the same time suggestive. Therefore, I fished out of my archive one of the very first works that I did just arrived in Milan in 2012. In this work on paper (112x140cm) Piazzale Loreto is depicted as seems to me today. I still remember well the feelings with which I painted it: I was very angry because I couldn’t understand how to portray the city of Milan. It was […]
