On my European tour, in Sanremo, I met the Italian Undersecretary for Culture, Vittorio Sgarbi, and the journalist Angelo Crespi, discussing art and new collections.
My European tour, which began in Cannes on the 5th of September, reached its third stop, which turned out to be of paramount importance both for me and for the organization of the event itself.
It was the first art biennial organized in the picturesque coastal city of Sanremo, held at the famous Teatro Ariston, with the participation of exceptional guests such as Angelo Crespi, esteemed journalist and art critic, and even the Italian Undersecretary for Culture, Vittorio Sgarbi, a celebrity recognized both in Italy and abroad in the field of art.
For those who may not know, Sanremo is a charming coastal city located on the western Ligurian Riviera, in the northwestern region of Italy. It is known for its mild climate throughout the year and is particularly famous for the Sanremo Festival, one of the most prestigious music events in Italy.
The Teatro Ariston, renowned for being the venue of the Sanremo Festival, is considered an icon in Italian musical culture and a key reference point for music and entertainment enthusiasts.
I am pleased with the synergy of elements that contributed to the success of this third event.
A New Collection
At my solo exhibition in Miami, I presented the latest artistic works from the “Radiance” collection, along with the “Mona Lisa’s Daughter.”
On this occasion, I chose to display the most recent piece from the “Radiance” collection: “The Girl and the Flamingo”, as well as a new work from a brand new collection called “Perfectly Imperfect”.
Meeting with Mr. Vittorio Sgarbi
I believe the most significant part of the event was the intriguing meeting with Professor Vittorio Sgarbi, the Italian Undersecretary for Culture. We had the opportunity to initiate a genuine dialogue about the current state of art.
It’s important to underline that Professor Sgarbi has had an extraordinary career, having held positions such as the curator of the Venice Biennale in 2011, in addition to numerous other roles such as European parliamentarian and director of the Trento Museum.
Meeting with Mr. Angelo Crespi
I had the opportunity to meet Dr. Crespi, a renowned journalist and art critic, equally famous in Italy.
What struck me the most was his exclamation of wonder when he saw “The Woman and the Flamingo.” It was truly an extraordinary experience.
In conclusion, this third stop of my European tour was a triumph of art and culture, enriched by meaningful encounters and the discovery of new collections. I am excited about what the future holds for this extraordinary artistic journey.
