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.

Monday 12th October 2020 – Duomo’s Square

In recent years, my research on the Duomo has expanded. Before I almost always concentrated on the Madonnina that overlooked the intertwining of the tram wires. Then, I enlarged on the entire facade of the Duomo, always crossed by the tram wires. Now I also like to paint the square as a whole, with the absolute novelty of the people walking through it. In this painting the colors are those of dawn, the awakening that leads people to cross the […]
