The works selected for Andrea Giovannini's solo-show "In volo" ("In flight") are the result of a long research conducted on the experimentation of an unusual technique similar to "dripping", using synthetic glazes, sprays and acrylic painting. The resulting images look like satellite visions of large portions of the sea and of coastal landscapes, on which the author intervenes with a small brush to elaborate the details.

The title "In volo" (on flight) suggests the idea of travel, evoking lightness and desire to look at the world in a different way, from another perspective and according to a different logic of knowledge. This doesn't simply mean being lighthearted and carefree, it is not an escape from reality but, quoting Italo Calvino, "it is the rising of the poet/philosopher above the heaviness of the world, showing that its gravity contains the secret of lightness."

Seeking lightness in the aesthetic experience is a way to survive. Beauty, in all of its manifestations, "is like a light feather in a world of tanks". And that's how we like to see these new works by Andrea Giovannini, like feathers that fly over the world revealing just the Beauty of it.
