This was the first street name that I´d remembered. I later on used it for a painting which was far from reality and influenced by my pleasant anticipation to the historical center of the city. This however, was only the first of many streets which looked like many other Mediterranean suburbs with its new multistory buildings from the late 1960ies, promotional signs and lighting of shop windows. When we grasped a glance at the Arno for the very first time, exactly at this road, I imagined how the river entered the Tyrrhenian Sea during the 16century, when Galileo Galilei lived there.
At my very first beginning I started to paint for making visible all the long and short waiting periods of some singular days of waitings, of waiting for everything that depends on other peoples decisions. Proceeding to do so up to now, painting became my main- force of habit and growned up to my profession.
