PIOGGIA INVERNALE: GIORNI DI PIOGGIA A MILANO   2011. 

Photo Andrea Rossetti

With thanks to Galleria Monica de Cardenza, Milano, Italy.

This Milanese artist has created a series of papers stained with inks reminiscent of the Milanese rain at different times of the year. As someone who grew up in Milan, I have found these images a powerful reminder of those wonderful long grey wet winter days of childhood .

The artist himself has been quoted by the art magazine ' Arte' as saying  that his  works ' rimandano alla dimensione del ricordo o a una memoria collettiva' , I fully agree with him, his art reaches deep within the emotional collective memory of the shared experience, Milan , our city , its architecture and colour palette, under the winter rain.
