Gilberto Piccinini artist of the sea...
Gilberto Piccinini was born in Milan, where he lives and works. His professional course has been characterized by his love for the Liguria coasts and sea, which drives him to portray it in paintings rich in emotions and fascination. The technique and the choice of the images have become, in these years, the code of his aesthetic research. The themes of his works and his artistic personality were influenced by his father-in-law, Emilio Vio Sopranis.

"Free man, you'll always love the sea — for this,
That it's a mirror, where you see your soul
In its eternal waves that chafe and roll;
Nor is your soul less bitter an abyss.
in your reflected image there to merge,
You love to dive, its eyes and limbs to match.
Sometimes your heart forgets its own, to catch
The rhythm of that wild and tameless dirge.
The two of you are shadowy, deep, and wide.
Man! None has ever plummeted your floor —
Sea! None has ever known what wealth you store —
Both are so jealous of the things you hide!
Yet age on age is ended, or begins,
While you without remorse or pity fight.
So much in death and carnage you delight,
Eternal wrestlers! Unrelenting twins!
Man and the Sea
by Charles Baudelaire
