ArtWork representing the imaginary portrait of St. Francis of Assisi, executed in pencil and charcoal in contemporary figurative style, inspired by the figure of the great Italian religious and poet. I interpreted the expression on his face in such a way that the strong personality, extreme sweetness and purity of soul were revealed.

Since my childhood I have been painting and drawing as an absolute vocation for life: being an artist is everything to me. During my thirtyfive years of experience, after my school and academic training, I have developed my artistic style. This is supported by a solid figurative base also coming from the study of Greco-Roman art, but I have completely interpreted it in a contemporary key, ranging from portraits to sacred art, from painting on canvas, wood, leather, ceramics and wax to wall paintings. I often use oil paints, acrylic temperas, enamels, pencils, ink and charcoal, inserting my style in what some critics of art define as "Contemporary Renaissance". However It is a language characterized by new creative impulses that can make the universal canons of beauty or the intense depth of the artistic idea and concept current. The particularity of my work emerges not only from my conspicuous activity of painting mostly inspired by the world of music and theatre (organizing several solo, group and permanent exhibitions in Italy and abroad), but also in the ability to express myself in other well-defined figurative worlds: imaginary portraits, paintings for Historical Reenactments called "Palio", artistic works for Haute Couture Houses and Publishing Houses and even the publications of my poems. In my imaginary portraits I have given a face to some physically unknown historical characters belonging to the cultural and religious world just through literary information, interpreting them as people of our time with the customs of their time. With regard to the paintings related to Historical Reenactments (Palii, plural of "Palio"), I have taken commissions from institutions or foundations of about 90 different Italian cities, allowing me to obtain the record of 112 artworks created for as many historical events. I have also worked with Haute Couture Houses (Roberto Cavalli and Prada) for many years accomplishing artistic hand painted works on finished clothing, for several collections. I have also edited artistic representations for many publications such as the series "Artusi'', the covers of the poetic volumes "El árbol del conocimiento" and "Los caprichos de la luna" in Madrid (Pigmalion Edypro) and "Codice interiore" (Cantagalli Editor) in Siena, winner of the First International Literary Prize "Spoleto Festival Art"in 2013.
