Rome: notes, sketches, peeks, glimpsesArt book, Books
by Adriana Morabia Silvestri
Following the success of Magic Moments in Florence, Adriana Silvestri explores another of Italy’s historic cities. Her kaleidoscopic images and subtle variations on a theme offer new perspectives on what, in the age of mass tourism, have become all too familiar sights, capturing the true essence of the “Eternal City.” Her eye zeroes in on all kinds of small details, there are even the stray cats of the Colosseum and the Fori Imperiali, whose long shadows stand out against the purple of cardinals’ robes and the white marble of classical Rome.
Born in Milan, where she lives and works, Adriana Morabia Silvestri graduated from the Accademia di Brera. She has taught visual education; for nine years she collaborated with Mondadori with texts and drawings. Her work has been shown in solo exhibitions in Milan and collective exhibitions in London, New York and São Paulo; some of her art books are now part of public and private collections.
