La Dolce Vita

I made this painting to celebrate "culture", specifically Italian culture. I am an Italian, living in Canada and I have watched helplessly from afar as Italy became a morgue. Friends and family have told me horrifying details about the health and economic implications of Covid-19 in Italy. What do we cling to during this time of suffering? Our culture-it defines who we are. (I worked for 15 years as a refugee lawyer and I saw first hand how important one's culture is to mental survival in times of difficulty) . The Italian culture is rich and resilient -we will survive. (I decided to give all proceeds from this painting and any products from it to charity, specifically RomaCares) It is 40"30" Acrylic on Canvas using a knife
