THE PAIN OF THE WORLD IN THE WORKS OF DAVIDE CANTONI
Considered an artist of great interest for his innovative technique and the intensity of the stories he tells and reinterprets through his work, Davide Cantoni has recently devoted himself to the development of two interesting cycles of works: Les Etrangers and the works on the consequences of global warming (2 degrees).
Created using the famous technique of burning paper with a magnifying glass, Davide Cantoni’s works are inspired by images published in the New York Times and are designed to come into direct visual contact with the famous sculptures on display at the MANN Museum in Naples.
A kind of dialogue but also a clash between giants and common men, indelible history and passing news, great deeds that are forever imprinted in the collective memory and episodes that briefly intrigue but are soon forgotten.

BALANCE THROUGH THE WORKS OF ANTONIO SIGNORINI
Dynamic poses, jumping, running, galloping, dancing. Antonio Signorini’s works have no eyes, the gaze becomes a search for something that cannot be seen because the artist provokes the viewer and stimulates his contribution.
Antonio Signorini is an Italian artist, born in Tuscany in 1971.
Immersed in the history and art of the Renaissance since his childhood, he shared his father’s passion for art and, together with him, visited museums, cities, palaces, observed and studied monumental and archaeological works in Italy and Europe, giving rise to a process of research and study of art history and primitive art that accompanied him throughout his life.

THE PAINTING OF THE IMAGINATIVE IN THE WORKS OF THREE ITALIAN ARTISTS
There are artists who have the power to express themselves with the painting of the imaginative and who are able to interpret reality with visions verging on the absurd.
I believe that there is an extreme need for artists who are creators of images and who know how to look beyond reality and are able to spread messages with imaginative power in the world, because this is the only way to better understand what is happening around us and to taste an abstract portion of that infinity to which every human being aspires.
Here then are three Italian artists to get to know.
