A picciuttedda n’ta varchetta
Description by the artist
In A picciuttedda n’ta varchetta (Sicilian for The girl in the little boat), I wanted to represent a girl in a boat where the blue of the sky and the blue of the sea intertwine with the golden yellow of the dress as if to symbolize the sun of our Sicily on a summer day.

The artwork in the Sicilian culture
A vision of Sicily in this work given by some characteristic elements such as the sea, the fish and the inevitable lighthouse, a great symbol of the Sicilian coasts since the most famous of all: that of Venus Ericina, venerated by all the sailors of antiquity.
