And 'certainly a duty to learn and develop the thought of Woodns about this topic. The painter took almost never expose. The motivation, the reasons for this choice, is not well understood, although many times had this opportunity. And above all this happened over the years in Switzerland, when he met patrons willing to fund a possible staff. But, he did not even in later years when economically could cope with such an event, in the perspective of what, exactly, was urged by family members. He refused all the opportunities that were offered, including those served on a silver platter. One of these, in fact, was to be able to display, in the eighties, in Campione d'Italy. The children used to say: "The exhibitions will you, when I am dead."
That was his way of getting to their insistence on time. Curiously, however, almost never refused invitations to competitions and collective. Competitions, which he won and sometimes she loved, such as the Grape Festival Mendrisio, an event that takes place every year outdoors and for this he especially appreciated. We triumphed in 2001 and stood always at the forefront in subsequent years. As a collective, however, made it really low, the last was the prestigious, cited in the previous chapter.

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.
