The metaphor that artistically returns his thought, invested with truth, poetry and imaginative trait, characterizes the exhibition “Vivere da Ombrelloni – Living like umbrellas” which the Giuliano Ghelli Museum in San Casciano, a container of art in constant dialogue between ancient and contemporary, hosts until 26 June.
