MY CHOICE IS PAINTING
I have made a deliberate choice to paint only what comes natural to me. My sole wish has always been to dedicate myself completely to painting. This is why I opened my atelier 12 years ago and why I like to engage with people, leaving my workshop open to the street and to anyone who desires to look in and loves art; a place where everyone is free to express himself under my guidance, accompanied by my suggestions and by the music which creates a familiar and comfortable atmosphere.
A STROLL TROUGH ART
The San Niccolò neighbourhood where I have my Studio is like a stroll amidst art, where you can find many ateliers of painters, sculptors, and performers, and even antique shops, jewellers, goldsmiths and restorers. In times past the area harboured merchants and shop keepers and was called “the flea-bitten village”, because of its precarious nature, shored up against the defensive walls of the city, a temporary settlement in the intent of the Florentine urban planners of the time. Maybe this is why I immediately felt myself at home there, with its precarious and unstable character, but also real and authentic just as an artist should be. A part of the city far from the reality of the Florence of the tourists.
