In my paintings I try to narrate architecture by highlighting its expressive qualities and the essentiality of the forms. Architecture thus becomes not only construction but interpretation. Art is always architecture understood as a constructive force.
My attention has focused on observing the city of Rome, finding inspiration in the architecture of the Palazzine (apartment buildings), an urban phenomenon that emerged in the 1920s and 1930s as the residence of the emerging bourgeoisie. The series on the Palazzine Romane was dictated by the desire to make known a forgotten Rome: a historical period in which architects and engineers had a utopian vision and they had managed to give Rome the image of a modern city. The Palazzina became the protagonist of the new urban fabric of Rome, making it overcome the concept of the nineteenth-century city: trying to put "particular" paintings of this open-air archive on my canvases was like rediscovering a forgotten "value" and proposing it in a contemporary key.
In my work Piazzale Magellano I try to combine the charm of the purity of the lines and the clarity of the architectural forms a certain expressive freedom of the background of the canvas that continuously comes into contact with the architecture I draw and paint trying to create a play of transparencies, lights and shadows. The vertical drippings do not hide the legibility of the represented image but with this expressive freedom I try to put the building under a new perspective, transforming it into iconographic impression, creating a painting between figuration and abstraction. I try to use the fluid pictorial material, the transparent color to show the different layers of the painting so that this work can be able to narrate the phases of its realization. The compositional study of the work is also very important to me and above all I try to create in the canvas a personal shot of the architecture. Balconies playing on the strong overhang and aerodynamic shapes give an important plastic movement to the rigid elevations. Architecture becomes vision thanks to the expressive language of the building where, purity of lines and legibility of volumes are combined in a perfect synthesis.
The work Piazzale Magellano is a tribute to the architect Adalberto Libera’s project built in Rome Ostia in 1935.
