The meeting will start at 21, preceded at 7:30 pm by a refreshment. Free admission. At the center of the interview is the theme of the Apuan Alps, which Domenici traveled far and wide and which he painted on many occasions. “Beppe, my father, was fourteen years old when he first climbed from the volcano to Mosceta to continue to the Pania cross,” says his daughter Gabriela. “He fell in love with these mighty mountains, discovering hidden hollows of marble shimmering in the midday sun in the caverns, admiring at sunset the quarries of the red Vinca tinged with pink, walking up windy and shining ridges in contemplation of peaks, ridges, cliffs, canoni … He always carried a notepad and pencil “to take notes” as he used to say. He walked, then suddenly stopped and began to draw … without ever getting tired ».
