About The Artwork

The painting by Xhevdet Dada depicts a significant historical event that occurred on May 15, 1941, when an Albanian villager named Vasil Laci attempted to attack the Italian Emperor Victor Emanuel III during his visit to Albania. Laci, who was outraged by the Italian occupation of Albania, hurled a bomb at the emperor's car as it passed through the city of Tirana. The attack failed, but it marked a turning point in the Albanian resistance against Italian rule. In the painting, we see the moment just before the attack, with Laci standing in the foreground, his arm raised and the bomb at the ready. In the background, we see the procession of cars carrying the Italian officials, including the emperor, as they make their way through the streets of Tirana. The painting captures the tension and drama of the moment, with Laci's determined expression contrasting with the obliviousness of the Italian officials. Dada's use of color and light adds to the intensity of the scene, with the bright white of the emperor's car standing out against the muted colors of the surrounding buildings. Overall, the painting is a powerful depiction of a pivotal moment in Albanian history, and a reminder of the bravery and sacrifice of those who fought for their country's freedom.
