The memory of the lockdown. A series of large-sized paintings in which the artist Andrea Baruffi interprets the dark period of the lockdown in a surreal, ironic and colorful way. His contemporary and alternative figurative painting reflects the optimistic and rejuvenated spirit typical of America, his country of adoption, in which "you can" is the verb that if you want everything is possible!
