These conical rooftops are traditional drystone huts located in the Itria Valley of Puglia. This was one of Giovanni’s stops during his travels to southern Italy. The artist was immersed by the region's unique natural beauty and culture and served as another subject for Giovanni to enrich his artist portfolio.
With a stroke of the palette knife, the artist has distinctively composed the emotions, fusion of colors, texture and passion to convey the attractiveness of an alleyway of the historical town of San Jose del Cabo, Mexico.
It was a fascinating journey for Giovanni to descend 308 steps to admire the beautiful lighthouse. The rusted and weakened cast iron, the frosted windows, the aged roof shingles offered the artist a natural contrast to the colorful rock formations to be captured on canvas.
The solitude of the fountain with its appealing rustic structure and surroundings engaged the artists attention. A vital point for the inhabitants' needs.
During his traveling of southern Italy, the artist was mesmerized by this well preserved medieval town. Its rustic simplicity and the silence in which every house is wrapped. An inspiration for Giovanni with the majestic and imposing white stone Gothic tower.
The Marche region offers natural scenery with mountains, hills, valley, woods and cultivated fields. Giovanni wanted to capture a spectacular summer scenery of cultivated fields maintained as if they were gardens or parks.
On a hot summer day, the artist and his family stopped at this interesting old fountain, situated at the base of “le sorgenti della Majella”, for a drink of water. The rustic style and the incessant flow of the cold refreshing crystal water inspired Giovanni to recreate the image of this historical “fontanella”.
This painting is another nostalgic rendition of the artist hometown of Sant’Agata Irpina. An old shoemaker workshop were impeccable artistry was created to serve the community. A coffer of childhood memories. The closed antique door is a plea to revive those memorable times.
Giovanni wanted to deliver the astonishing allegro concerto of colors fusion while promenading on the soundless beach. An early morning escape to value the natural beauty of the rolling in of the tide on the pristine sand.
