Back when I was a child, surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, and immense green forests, I would find myself with markers and some blank sheets of paper and spend my time drawing and painting.
When someone asked me “What would you like to be when you grow up?”, I used to answer that I wanted to become a painter and a psychologist. I wanted to know about human feelings…
Then, forgetting my childhood dream, I took other paths, graphics and Art Direction.
In 2006, an important year for me, I was first introduced to the Human Birth Theory by Massimo Fagioli in a small psychotherapy group.
In November 2006 I went to an amazing exhibition “PICASSO, La Joie de vivre 1945 – 1948”, held at Palazzo Grassi in Venice. I stood for hours in front of that immense work of art, then I saw the many pictures where Picasso transformed the bull into a line. I was speechless. Then I went back home, bought canvases and paint, and started to paint. I haven’t stopped since.
In November 2007, I started to attend the seminars of Analisi collettiva (Collective analysis) held in via Roma Libera 23 – cure, research and training.
After almost eleven years, I can probably say that I began my artistic research with Picasso, but I found my human and artistic identity with the psychiatrist Massimo Fagioli and the Analisi collettiva.
I will always paint.
This poem, written during a difficult moment, is dedicated to the person who healed my I can’t do it-attitude.
It is never too late to become self-fulfilled; the joy of living is in the relationships with others, by reaching your true self you create a red thread that will inspire others to do the same.
