Una breve citazione dal libro: "...l'immagine che la tradizione ne divulga è quella d'una città d'oro massiccio, con chiavarde d'argento e porte di diamante, una città-gioiello, tutta intarsi e incastonature..."
THE ENCHANTED TOWN.
Another painting with a little landscape. I began this in 2010 and I finished this year.
It is an oil painting and collage. Dimensions: cm 30 x 20.
Its title is "The Enchanted Town" and while I was painting I remembered the beautiful book "Le Città Invisibili" written by Italo Calvino.
Here is a short quote from the book but I don't traslate it because it's difficult to render the same poetry in a translation. However Calvino writes about a city full of gold, silver and precious stones.
