“I love colors bright, resonant, full, gloomy and dark
like the sea of the Gulf of Saint Eufemia during a storm.
Looking out onto the sea was when I first experienced the joy of colour;
I remember it as if it were yesterday. At the time, I wasn’t even tall
enough to peer above the iron railing of my terrace; I would place my
head between the bars and stare, never tiring of the view. I like scary,
mysterious hues, like those carried by the wind from the Stromboli volcano,
or the tender, idyllic colors of the four walls of the room in which I was born.”
