Four personalities for three generations of painters and sculptors who have brought prestige to the island of Ischia.
He is one of the most famous painters of Ischia.
Born in Forio in 1901, he moved away from his native land and then returned there in the 1950s.
He paints masterpieces first of expressionist and impressionist matrix, finally he dedicates himself to figurativism.
He died in 1981, leaving several works imbued with the essence of a tormented and restless soul.
One from Forio, one from Russia and two from Switzerland. A “cafettera”, a photographer and two painters.
Four protagonists of a fruitful and happy period of the island of Ischia: the 50s of the twentieth century.
Courageous and modern women, tolerant, sensitive, independent, endowed with an unusual intellectual freedom.

the protagonist of the new exhibition.
A social message emerges from art that overcomes stereotypes and prejudices, against violence and discrimination of all kinds.
