Portiere di notte



Title: Portiere di notte
Year: 2020
Size: 60x61 cm
Technique: Oil on canvas

Description: The artist describes a fragment of the life of a solitary man who, in the dark of night, leans behind his window and observes the daily routine of the hotel porter. The hotel, creaky and old as the artist suggests, is a "mere point of passage between before and after". The night porter is alone. His only friend is the melancholy that accompanies him in the pauses between a "hello" and a "goodbye" to customers.
