Remarks: Amedeo Clemente Modigliani (Italian pronunciation: [ameˈdɛːo modiʎˈʎaːni]; 12 July 1884 – 24 January 1920) was an Italian painter and sculptor who worked mainly in France. He is known for portraits and nudes in a modern style characterized by elongation of faces and figures that were not received well during his lifetime but later found acceptance.
Alfonso was born in Salerno in 1961 and grew up in Palinuro, where he remains living and working till this date.
And as Bacon once said "I think art is an obsession with life and after all, as we human beings, our greatest obsession is with ourselves. Then followed possibly with animals, then with landscapes afterwards."
