I am sorry to have missed Vecchi Cani, the recent exhibition of drawings
by Giovanna Durì at the Nuages Gallery in Milan (the same space that regularly
features the shows of Matticchio). Durì is a well known graphic designer
and exhibition designer, and this show was her coming out as an artist.
The dogs portrayed were met in friends' homes, streets, parks, and kennels.
After all we've been through last Summer, I was deeply moved
by the sadness and tenderness in the eyes of these sweet old dogs,
and by Durì's loving gaze towards them.
Vecchi Cani is also a book published by Nuages.
