A painter writes like he paints, the error doesn’t bring blames along. Pages from the diary of a convalescent painter. Meetings, opinions, considerations and impressions about and with some of the painters he met during a whole life. Each artist is remembered through words and circumstances that are evocative and accurate at the same time, through descriptive pages and emblematic quotations within the same quick and informal style. Written in first person without the aim of completeness, this book is a personal and passionate portrait in memory, the story of an age of Italian painting from the point of view of the people that made it.
