One of the last painting ( oil on canvas 60x70cm), from a photo reference kindly provided by Raffaele Celentano and from my memories of the place.
The challenge was to transmit the impression of a place in Milano that I always particularly loved. The area is really lively, thanks to all the bar and restaurants there, still the charming side has to be found in this winter mood, slightly foggy, water in the channel and in the air.
The high season for the “Navigli” with tables outside the restaurants, full of chatting people is over, it remains Milano, with warm lights reflecting, smooth shapes, a city cold and warm at the same time, a bit shy maybe with a moderate elegance and a reserved attitude in sharing its feeling.
I hope you enjoy it.
