Riccardo Sanna exhibited at the Monumental Church of St. Francis

Gualdo Tadino (PG) - For the entire month of February 2014 he exhibited at the Monumental Church of St. Francis - Gualdo Tadino (PG) maestro Riccardo Sanna, title of the exhibition "Colors and Thoughts," Thoughts are colors that pale watercolors diluted by the mind as we move inside, push us over to look or search for a part of ourselves, if we had lost.

Exactly thoughts and colors is the title of the staff of Riccardo Sanna at the Church of San Francesco at Gualdo Tadino. Painter of Sardinian origin, but Umbrian adoption, Sanna is a real landscape, a landscape artist associated with the great Italian tradition that draws inspiration from natural and architectural beauty of our land that at times, untouched by modern, seems to be fixed in a remote time.

When for the first time I've recommended it to Richard to explore the theme of the door seemed puzzled, as if they could not repent his true art form. A few months later find myself in all this personal experimentation and research on the topic, which I think makes it instantly recognizable stylistic Riccardo Sanna.

And so the doors finally acquire their own identity, they are no longer mere objects of wood decaying and crumbling, but they are people, memories, places, through the subtle colors and shades watercolor acquire their absolute identity. Two doors merchant country become Mario and Antonella, two friends are so different as to be complementary, or meet Pier Paolo Pasolini played by a door Chia Village of Soriano nel Cimino, with the view of the same country, so dear to the writer and director.

Very touching is turn our gaze to the two doors that indicate the house numbers 38 and 32, the years of birth of the parents of Sanna two different ports but that for more than fifty years are pointing at each other, unperturbed by 'age and life. The time is therefore one of those mysteries that often escapes our mind, it is malleable and unreal in the events comprehensible.

Overtime does not break the flow of habits, but diverts to a parallel time, where objects are people and people are objects, where a door can conceal a mystery, but it can contain in it the truth of the story. Just as in a labyrinth of the mind, the door becomes the transition between what we are and of what we will leave.
