2020 Duomo 80x80cm olio su tela

Monday 11th January 2021 – Milan Cathedral

Each painting has its own history and its own time of execution. In this painting about the Milan Cathedral, it took me a long time to come to a conclusion.

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 […]
