«Art is a spiritual and immaterial respite from the difficulties of life»

The quote of the painter Fernando Botero, fits perfectly for those who are the feelings and needs of Massimiliano

Massimiliano says: “My intent is to travel the world to paint and share with people of different nationalities and culture the love for art and the beauty of life.

My style often changes, I’m still exploring the medium, watercolor offers endless possibilities, is a continuous research, I prefer to paint in plein air (my city, Rome, offers remarkable views to paint, urban and rural scenes) because you are obliged to be more instinctive and immediate, and when riding the technique, this one leads to amazing results.”
