Grazia Danti makes an unprecedented personal and artistic journey: she still works in fashion and starts painting in her adulthood, inspired by a remarkable sensitivity and an innate versatility that is well represented in the works selected for Palazzo Portinari Salviati. Among them stand out faces and shapes of women, a heterogeneous female, inspired by memories, personal stories, suggestions of places, affections, readings, reflections. Women look strong, free, poetic, seductive, combative, mysterious, with traits are the undisputed protagonists of the small and large format canvases, made with the oil technique on canvas and raw canvas.
