After  that period more or less obscure, Woodns returned to Como in the second half of 1959, he found work as a painter in the then largest city, Ticosa, and there he met his future wife, Carla Peverelli, coming from a family of peasant origin, turned then, with the advent of industrialization, in proletarian nucleus. Umberto became engaged and was in a hurry to get married; convolò wedding May 22, 1960, the feast of St. Rita, the saint of roses. The couple was eager to have children, but were not immediately. They had to wait about three years and then from that marriage were born two children, a boy and a girl.
It was about a year after the wedding that Umberto braced again the brush. It was thanks to the father, Umberto Peverelli, or rather of his provocation. It happened that at a dinner party with his family, he manifested a desire to buy canvases and paints. The father in law, who was a man 'Victorian' with principles very different from his, he had a high regard and, having a little 'weighed that night ruled in dialect: "If you voret ago, you barlafus?». As if to say, "What do you want, little man?". Woodns takers and pushed even more pride, began to paint. And this was for life. He never abandoned more art at his home in Rebbio in Como, in Spartacus 13 / B.

Carla Peverelli (1929 Camerlata-Rebbio, 1995) - He was a companion for the artist, very caring and patient ... It was certainly not easy to live with a man so outlandish and completely different from her. A woman liege duty and precise ... its opposite ... For love and only love was willing to forgive many times.

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.
