Art is the outward expression of an inner monologue. The artist has always been the one who makes the invisible visible".

“I believe that what distinguishes my art is the scent of Sicily, in the colors, shapes and contents that leak out. The history, culture and labor of a people from the sweet sour taste inspire and take shape in the expressive manifestations of my creativity.
The opinion of the Governance
Marisa Di Mitri , versatile and original artist, finds no limits of materials, shapes and colors to express her creativity. From the abstract canvases – an explosion of colors – to the Madonnas and Child that recall the Byzantine icons for the hieraticity and the golden backgrounds, up to objects of high craftsmanship such as painted bags or crocheted bags, each work of this artist draws inspiration from the land of Sicily, between nature and culture.
