Sicilia in lapa
Description by the artist
Print on canvas limited edition format 50 x 70 cm, dedicated to the 9 capital cities of Sicily, each represented by a monument or a specific element, and also enriched by the inclusion of symbols of the island, objects and figures that together offer a story, albeit synthetic of the wonders of Sicily.
Details and dimensions
The artwork in the Sicilian culture
The work of art is a complete journey in Sicily: Isola Bella in Taormina, the corals of Trapani and Erice, Porta Garibaldi in Catania, The Tower of Frederick II in Enna and the Triton Fountain in Caltanissetta. The ceramics of Sciacca and Santo Stefano di Camastra. The Cathedral of Syracuse, the Politeama Theater and the Arab Domes in Palermo. Ragusa Ibla and Cefalù; the Madonnina of Messina. Temples of Agrigento; the islands of Stromboli and Basiluzzo. The little church of Lampedusa. Oranges, Wine, Cannoli, Cassata and spaghetti with sea urchins. The zodiac, the clothes and the alleys, the sky and the sea. Over all dominates the Sun of our land that you can visit on board of the “lapa”.
