The Ponte Vecchio reflected in the Arno River in Florence in 1934

Composition:

Parallelism | Overlay

In this early work, Italo, strong of his profession of Chromo-lithographer, experienced in stone engraving of colours one by one and their successive superimposition effects, chose gouache precisely for its covering properties.

Background

Period:

1929-1939 : Juvenile Impetus

A steady hand and life ahead of you open up all the prospects that are invigorated by the advent of innovative artistic currents. This is the time of freedom and daring. Full-length portraits, allegories tinged with symbolism and futurism, depicting thoughtful, even ecstatic characters, celebrating cultivated nature, friendship and family, in a kind of mysticism of immanence.
