In painting these solar sundials, I am inspired by classical models dating back to the Latin, Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque periods, and the cultural and artistic value of these objects rich in aesthetic, emotional and historical influences is such as to give a strong characterization to any environment .
I carefully choose the supports on which to paint: hand-made terracotta of artisanal production and marine plywood, weatherproof and salt-resistant wood for outdoors, but also for interiors and this makes it possible that, as many do, my sundials can be used as important pieces of furniture, so as not to deprive oneself of the pleasure of having them constantly in view, like a painting, a sculpture, an object of art - which they in fact are - thus renouncing to their primary function of Solar Clock.
Nothing to object ... but if we didn't want to deprive ourselves of this last aspect, the in-depth historical and scientific researches for an accurate and correct planning, allow - if put in the condition to fulfill their function - to my sundials to perfectly indicate the time local solar of the place where they are installed.
I got passionate and I look for the right pieces for my paintings in the places that traditionally produce fine art pottery and quality cotto like Impruneta, Pienza, Arezzo, Faenza, Velletri, Castelfiorentino, Montelupo, Monteriggioni, Volterra, Vietri and others, leaving me to suggest environment, from the people and the culture of the place the idea of ​​painting using pots, trays, plates and tiles with particularly suggestive shapes.
