About The Artwork

The artwork is a mosaic made of shaped glazed terracotta tiles on a wooden support. The colors are very intensive and bright. It is freely inspired by the time when Pisa was a maritime republic in the thirteenth century. The work is imaginative invention: it takes inspiration from ancient images and rework them in an atmosphere of a fantastic story, with the representation of an agitated Tyrrhenian sea, of the city enclosed in a shell of turreted walls, of fabulous ships, of emerging tails of whales.

The artworks of Nicoletta De Francesco are permanently exposed in her Atelier: Studio d’arte Barbuti – De Francesco, Via dei Mille 22 Pisa, Italy. The site of the studio is:
