Alice and her Pencils


 "Lapis, aromatum de rubrica sic vulgo vocant, liber Toscani quam vidistis in tenues frusta oblonga et acutus factus est: et de variis, ut color plumbi, et Lapis Plumbinum appellatur; et nigro, et nigrum Lapis appellationes. "

(Caietanus Volpi, MDCCLVI)
  * "Lapis, so called vulgarly some spices of red earth, called by 'Toscani book, which you saw in thin oblong pieces, and they become acute is written: and it is of various sorts, such as color of lead, and is called Lapis Piombino, and black, black and Lapis appeals. "
(Gaetano Volpi, 1756

Study eyes

Study eyes - WOODNS
* " When I started doing portraits to the people from his eyes. Li studied for minutes and minutes, abbozzavo them with the Pencil and that was the secret because once you've drawn the eyes .. What happens is that all the rest will come by itself, is as if all the other pieces to glide yourself around that starting point ... "
Alessandro Baricco

Mountain Lake

Mountain Lake - WOODNS
* " It seemed marked by the Pencil of the humorist a mountain trail that wound through the pines, now appiattandosi by a thick bush, now darting into the open meadow, carelessly curious to every stream and every precipice, completely hypocritical seriousness when it departs of the highway, all the follies and escapades when he threw himself on the soft carpet of the "Field of Flowers".

* D'Annunzio, IV-I-330: 
On the face of shameless Luna ran a black cloud, 
drawn with force and a skill worthy of the
Pencil of O-Kou-Sai."

* D'Annunzio, IV-I-200: 
"Others are sanguine pencil, a black Pencil, three pencils with a touch of pastel pencil ... Sometimes the blood contains par purple,
the black Pencil gives a sign velvety. "

Event not to be missed! Nadia Turella and Giovanna Sacchetti, two contemporary artists whose works are inspired by various themes imbued with present are on display. Arguments and questions, of a moral and current nature that although they do not want, concern us and touch us closely in this time and in our journey. Nadia, guides us and leads us with the significant and beautiful works, through antithetical worlds. Lands in which elements like, friendship and bullying, the right to childhood and violence against women and children, the discriminating color of the skin and the beauty of the colors of mother nature and its respect are contrasted. Giovanna with her enchanting works accompanies us and guides us in her enchanted world, made up of trees and figures, defined by her as "angelic" that speak of emotions, loneliness, anger and protest against all forms of violence. His figurative missive urges us to understand that we are all one and we must live in harmony with everything, respecting other beings. So the message of both enclosed in the title of the exhibition is "Beyond" as a wish ... Because there is always hope that everything will improve. F.B.W.
