HIDDEN CANVASES (Giambra Editori 2019) Italian/English edition.
The protagonist is Master Lorenzo Chinnici, but the text is not a celebration of his pictorial art, it is rather a psychological tale of the continuous conflict in relation with his son: this clash is the real hidden canvas of Lorenzo’s production. The other fundamental figure of this existential canvas is his wife: she is supposed to guide the family chariot with two leading horses, husband and son, who both can’t stand the bridles.
Diego Celi, author of this text, writes José Van Roy Dali, son of Salvador Dalì, in the preface:
“…to caress a thought, to wander within the clouds of fantasy….to be transmitted with the ingenuity of a child or with the arrogance of an adult in a story that, from its first few lines, ignites curiosity and leads the reader to continue with joyful emotion that leads to expand the boundaries of the imagination to enter an unreal reality in which anything is possible….”
