How this path is started …..
The passion for drawing was born as a child: fascinated by my mother's pastel drawings (I still have before my eyes the splendid ship of Ulysses sailing the sea) struck by those images, I too began to copy figures with colored pencils from books and autumn leaves. The turning point came when I was 17 and my mother always seeing a drawing I had done while I was supposed to be doing my school homework, she said: nice! You should complement it with colors. So I made my first painting which I still keep, not knowing anything about the pictorial technique I used enamel paints to paint the wood. I began to find out about the pictorial technique in a pictorial technique book written by De Chirico. I was so influenced by it
that my first paintings were influenced not only by De Chirico's pictorial technique but also by his style. The following year I started i
my university studies in Florence faculty of Architecture which coincidentally is close to the Academy of Fine Arts which I attended as a curious person. The atmosphere of Florence with so many works by great artists was extremely stimulating, so much so that we wanted to follow that integral vision of art: painting, sculpture, architecture. During the university period I studied the history of art and this made me want to visit all those works described in the books. Thus began an artistic tour of Italian and European museums: a period of great learning. When I graduated I began the profession of architect but I did not forget my passion for painting, indeed thanks to my work as an architect I had the opportunity to see my paintings hanging in many homes. They were figurative but not realistic paintings, stylized figures made with oil colors on canvas. For some years I made paintings that were transferred to glass with specific enamel colors and made by a specialized company. Some of these creations are present in public buildings both in Italy and in the Netherlands.
