Abbandonati series
Catania (Italy) 2017
The Ritornella station is a railway station on the slopes of the Etna volcano, essentially for the purpose of movement, the station was opened for operation in 1932 and was definitively abandoned in 1987. (source Wikipedia) During the Second World War the area where it is located the station has been subject to bombing, still some unexploded missile stands near the station. This, along with many other stations, are part of a circuit of railways abandoned by the state over time and now abandon the same throughout Italy. I painted this piece imagining a couple greeting each other before departure, a kiss that remains over time
This wall is part of the series “Abbandonati”. An artwork that talks about time and emotional bonds.
