Corriere Mercantile 14th February 2008

The world of Art is expression of the first need of human subconscious. Art is generated by emotions, by the need of creating images of life and world that surround us and in which we live. The enchanted world of Art is a good world since, considering the infinite richness and variability of artistic creations, everyone can find in them something to fall in love with. It is a world that has one purpose only - to create and give back the emotions from which it was born.
