Today is one of Italy’s most celebrated holidays: Festa della Liberazione (Liberation Day Celebration). It marks the fall of Mussolini’s Italian Social Republic and the end of the Nazi occupation in Italy in 1945. This date also commemorates the courageous partigiani whose support was essential to the victory.

Ricorre oggi il 76° anniversario della Liberazione d’Italia dal nazifascismo. Questa giornata importante ricorda anche i coraggiosi partigiani il cui sostegno è stato fondamentale per la vittoria.

Buon 25 Aprile a tutti gli italiani.

Something magical happens at sunset in Italy’s Tuscan hills. It’s as though King Midas reaches out from the great beyond and does his: “touch thing,”turning everything into rich golden hues.

This painting TUSCAN GOLD 1 is all about atmosphere and mood rather than reality.

  1. I always remember the golden light of Italy as being magical as it the country. Your painting is a celebration of that.
