In Genoa, is very difficult.
Artists here very often are modest and arrogant.
The critics as professionals to the service of their client artist do not provide a service to the community.
You have few daily paper with an “art page” to cover minor events.
The public is not keen to visit galleries.
The galleries are getting fewer and fewer.
This is a catch 22 situation.
Considering the above I have been very happy having received among many “beautiful’s” and “thankyou’s” praising words a comment from a lady that introducing herself said to me with tears in her eyes: “Thank you, I leave this exhibition full of joy for what I saw… this visit made a lot of good to my soul, Thank You”.
