While handling with care the last piece I’m working on, the look goes fast on the shelf next to the work table. Some volumes, still closed in the cellophane, are leaning against them messy, I have to fix them before they fall. On the golden spine there is my name printed.
It is the first publication entirely dedicated to my work; I’ve waited a long time for this moment, and now that it is real I still have to get used to it.
Franco and Roberta Calarota, founders of the Galleria d’Arte Maggiore in Bologna, believed in me and my work. Thanks to them, from September 27 to October 31, my artworks are exhibited in this solo show and the catalog has taken shape.
I also thank Domitilla Dardi, who has had the skill to transform the transparency of my works in ink for the words that introduce the book.
I worked hard to prepare this show, I felt the responsibility to be my best. I did it by stressing the technique to the limit and preparing unpublished pieces that I hope will succeed in transmitting the dedication they contain.
