The Artist

This work is a homage to Italy and to Lucio Fontana. I would just like to quote a verse by Leonard Cohen from 'Anthem': "There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in."

Francesco Vezzoli


Il mio vuole essere un omaggio all’Italia e a Lucio Fontana. E vorrei solo citare un verso di ‘Anthem’ di Leonard Cohen:“C’è una crepa in ogni cosa, è così che la luce riesce ad entrare."
