Ecstatic, dynamic, vivacious, sparkling, explosive and yet so warm and moving.
A great artist, Antonio Forcione! His show was one of a kind. Adressing his immense talent and amazing creativity to those old beautiful pieces gave them another shape. His personal, magnificent touch made them sensual in a way I couldn't have imagined before.

Really enjoyed the show!

Powerful
