Ciao a tutti,

On Thursday I'll be an happy guest of the AMB (Associazione Modellisti Bresciani) we will paint together and share our techniques.

Really looking forward to it!!

I'll be happy to have these happening more often, so, if you are up for it, let me know and we can paint together!

Ciao a tutti

Giovedì avro l'onore di essere ospite dell'AMB e passeremo la serata a dipingere insieme e scambiarci tecniche e consigli.

Non vedo l'ora!!!

Mi piacerebbe fare questi incontri più spesso, se vi va, fatemelo sapere e cerchiamo di organizzarci.


Giuseppe Garibaldi

Ciao a tutti,

I've had the opportunity to paint the box art or this masterpiece, sculpted by Adriano Laruccia edited by Masterclass.

The figure is Giuseppe Garibaldi, the "Hero of the Two Worlds" in tribute to his military expeditions in both South America and Europe.

Th sculpture is superb, as well as the casting, perfect fit of the various parts, and almost no mold lines to be removed.

Laruccia is one of my all time favourite sculptor and he has done an amazing job in making a portrait of our "Giuseppe", the uniform has been taken from a famous photography of our hero, again a perfect rention in scale from Adriano.

The Horse has one of the most beautiful head I ever painted, about the horse, Giuseppe Garibaldi mounted for most of his life Marsala a white/grey horse, which was with him until her death. Garibaldi ordered to build a small funerary monument in Sardinia where the horse still rest in peace.

I hope you will have the opportunity to paint this piece, I highly recommend it, and you will have the chance to celebrate with us the 150 year of the Italian republic.

Viva l'Italia!

Ciao a tutti
