The interplay of colours intrigues the external eye. We feel pervaded by an idea of movement and perceive the quivering of the shadows, united as they await an enigma hidden behind the clouds. This is why the clouds are the leading players in this picture, and they are full clouds that leave no room for the sky, only a small part of which is visible. This is where the artist wants to focus our attention, like that of the anonymous clouds contemplating them, in a hum of voices that can be heard simply by looking at the picture.
In 1977 Francesco Nuvolari graduated with a degree in architecture from the University of Florence and earned his accreditation as an art historian in 1989. His artistic research is fuelled by his immense passion for the sky in all its changeable manifestations: the union of architectural and celestial elements becomes the cornerstone of his photographic language. Over the years, Nuvolari has put out numerous books with prestigious publishers such as Arsenale, Electa, Mondadori and Laterza (Bari). He has staged important events to promote the culture and historic legacy of Italy in France as well as the United States, collaborating with the Italian Consulate General in Philadelphia, the Italian Consulate in Pittsburgh, the Italian Institute of Culture and Columbia University in New York. In 2004 he was curator for the Sensi Contemporanei at the Venice Biennale and four years later he was named president of the Italian Arts and Cultural of London.
