L’INDAGINE DELL’IO – Antonello da Messina #ritratto
Sembra un paradosso, ma andando sempre più indietro nel tempo riscopro la sintesi, per eliminare gli orpelli.
Questa mostra, questo artista, ci aiutano a ricordare la vera essenza del ritratto.
La tecnica in questo caso è fondamentale, ma il risultato si manifesta solo grazie alla immensa sensibilità nel saper “catturare” il “pensiero” del soggetto, l’intima essenza della persona.
Nonostante il ripetersi della medesima “inquadratura”, di tre quarti, fortemente ravvicinata, percepiamo la psicologia del soggetto dai dettagli, dall’increspatura della bocca, il brillio delle pupille, le ciglia abbassate.
“L’istantanea” ci pone di fronte ad una persona viva, reale; il sapiente utilizzo della luce, l’ombra plastica che modella il volto, lo sfondo monocromo scuro.
Grazie ad un autore rivoluzionario della seconda metà del secolo, ricevo l’energia per stimolare la ricerca, e non dimentichiamo che il secolo è il XV…







It’s a good habit to dedicate some time to research, and this was the right opportunity to do so.

Market rules, competition and any sort of logistical reason stir up our daily race against time,
which hinders research work Nevertheless, no sterility or moaning or shirking from our responsibilities is justified.

fencing as a metaphor of surgery

three photographers
me, one of them

It’s no secret that photography means “drawing with light”
So I decided to draw with light myself
Light as the fencer
Foil as the precision tool for the winning thrust.

Research implies study, method, accuracy, analysis, tests.
The same principles led my research finding the exact shape of light that conveyed the given concept.

At the beginning of every research our vision is blurred and we make missteps, but gradually we get closer and closer to the target until we hit it.

Although light painting has never been my speed, I took up the challenge: to develop experience in an unexplored field, to functionally express the topic.

Here you’ll find the pictures we shot and the usual video disclosing how we operated behind the scenes.

The title might sound provocative,
Let’s specify it immediately: for me it is, indeed.

Entrepreneurs who work,
get their hands dirty,
expose themselves, act consciously and passionately,
hire the young, less young and even less young ones
put their lifetime savings on the line, to go on,
in this time of crisis, to avoid laying off their staff.

Entrepreneurs who work
all day long
training never stops,
research done in “leisure time”.

Entrepreneurs who work,
they have flaws, too, that’s undeniable,
sometimes they walk head down,
don’t take a breath,
take up time from their family
barely go to the theatre, to the cinema, to a vernissage…
find the time, if you manage to.

Entrepreneurs who work
judge them as you want
you may think that’s rhetoric
but they have what it takes
look at them in their face
that’s the right chance.

Don’t miss it!

I’m on fire
sings Bruce
but he needs no pellet
he certainly doesn’t lack energies

Heat is our need,
from all points of view
Affection, passion, solidarity,
love, joy, peace,
these are tough moments.

That’s from encounters that the sparkles
(and good relationships) are made,
then warmth comes easily,
by sharing our everyday life

We can have our “jolly”
be it wood or be it pellet,
it doesn’t matter
it’s always ready to help us out
but it’s us who decide when to play it.

Energy is the physical dimension which measures the capacity of a body or a physical system to do work
Physical force, of the nerves and the muscles, active power of the organism;
Dynamic force of the spirit, which expresses itself as the will and capacity to act.
In the philosophy of Aristotle, the crucial and actuating act or principle, in contrast to the determinable and potential matter or principal is potential.
In physics, the aptitude of the system to do a job, that is, that works in a process in which it produces work and which is commensurate with the work done,
Can present itself in different forms, convertible into one another, in relation to the processes and the phenomenon in which the system participates, and can be exchanged between different systems.

Have you ever asked yourself how much energy is needed to produce photographs?
We are not talking about electric energy ,that would be trivial, but of the energy burnt by the human body, from head to foot: K calorie
Thought and movement, brain, legs, arms…
In this case then there is in the midst sport, and so the calculations become more complicated.
Four photographs = 100,000 K calorie
The figure may be surprising, but let’s try to do some sums:
Photograph: well, from the initial set-up to four shoots, about 10,000
Two assistants for four shoots, around …25,000
Now the best part;
13 cyclists about twenty laps of the track…43,000
10 basketball players, a good match with extra time and stoppages, 7,000
4 volleyball players, innumerable dives and jumps, 1,500
15 athletes 3000 hurdles, true, they do not do laps of the track, but we have grilled them with sprint and jump 15,000
We add the trainers, and do not forget the account and ads of the agency that has followed them: 6,000
Adding up we arrive at approximately 107,500 K calorie from tables and calculations taken from internet.
Well, now what shall we do with this result?
With the value itself, I would say nothing, we are not obsessed with diets.
But I need one hundred and seven thousand five hundred K calories to thank everyone that has made these shots possible, as evidence of the energy that is needed to produce photographs, maybe a warning to those who think a simple click is all it takes.

Ah…I was forgetting, as always, Treccani online:
In technique, with reference to the mode of exploitation of energy and to the forms in which this is available for practical purposes, one currently talks of e.mechanics, e.thermals, e.electricity, e.water supply, etc., and one says source of e. any substance or process capable of making available to man a certain quantity of usable energy.

The pleasure that children feel jumping in puddles
or cycling as fast as they can, splashing everywhere and everyone.

The sensation is the same,
that pleasure of transgression, that grabs you in that moment.

We tried that pleasure time and time again,
and then we stopped it, crystallized in an image:
the crown of His Majesty!

To participate in the tour of Paris of AMPI (Accademia Maestri Pasticceri Italiani….Academy of Italian Master Bakers) was not only an honour but also a real pleasure.

The meeting with the great French ‘maitre patissier ‘, in the laboratories and workshops of, Pierre Hermé, Arnaud Larher, Jean-Paul Hévin was particularly interesting from many points of view.

Firstly: the tastings…well yes my dears, macaroons, chocolates, desserts, an unforgettable sensory experience.

Secondly: the discovery of an extremely high level of craftsmanship associated with illustrious names from the French Relais Desserts. This is an aspect of my work that I love immensely, the possibility to learn about the multi-facets of completely different worlds, the meeting and the relationships with people who live and work with passion and outstanding competence.

Thirdly: the relaxed atmosphere on the occasions of the meetings takes away the classic stress of daily working rhythms, what’s more I must add that the bakers are rather friendly.

And then there’s Paris.
The city which, as a boy, I wandered far and wide with my camera hanging from my neck, the first B&W until the 2005 calendar of the six European cities, which you can see here, a city always fascinating and enjoyable.
Thank you AMPI

Here some photos: the official shot at Trocadero, the backstage (tourists take photos to the photographer, shooting the…Tour Eiffel), the behind the scene of the travel with some famous pastry chefs…the latest vips of the tv.
