Friday I visited “Artissima”, an important contemporary art fair in Turin. I saw several works of the painter Alessandro Busci, in particular I loved a mountainscape, with a very vibrant use of color spread on an iron support which is called cor-ten (if you want to know more visit his website www.alessandrobusci.com).
