Paintings by Vittorio Citterich


‘The paintings by Vittorio Citterich, which are presented in this exhibition, are the result of his memories of his many trips to Moscow and of his three years spent in the Soviet Union. The signs and the figures of the “old Russia” which the paintings depict, do not derive from the nostalgia for a world destined to disappear. On the contrary, they represent the presentiment for a future which has already started in the religious rebirth which, despite everything, is attracting the young Russian generation. Following the sketches which slightly allude to ancient icons, the memory goes to simple and strong human figures which have been held firm to the promise of the Christian faith. The exhibition is made up of around 30 pictures, both oils and pastels.’
