The exhibition, strongly wanted by Franco Maria Ricci, who knows and aprecciates the artist, is composed by a selection of thirty works, among which are four unpublished and painted especially for this event. These paintings, all oil on canvas and mostrly large sized,  represent a window on the modern society, of which they depict scenes and views through a whirling and unreal perspective.

Three main themes are on display, food, couples and free time and they trace, with their intense brushstrokes, a grotesque portrait of our world, Western and Italian, and at the same time realistic and oniric. But if the deformed proportions and the stressed expressions recall a nightmare, situations and characters can be easily be placed in our houses, in our living rooms or in restaurants. Robusti paints with a curios eye, ironic and sharp, that is visible event in the titles of the works, but it’s judgefree because it’s conscious to be part of the world portrayed.
