I paint to change the world. There's an old poet who said the world is never the Same after you write a good poem. I believe in this sentence and that art is the only thing that can really change the world. I don't worry about the Public, I work out of urgency, because I have to do it. The great transformations do not occur for economic reasons, but for mental, cultural and Artistic factors. Piero Pizzi Cannella

“What is this story of ‘whiteness’ about?” Captain Ahab must have thought when he heard about the white whale Moby Dick for the first time. And visitors entering the Palazzo Bellini, in the historic centre of Oleggio might well ask the same question when recovering from their amazement at precious stuccos, frescoes, and wooden ceilings restored to their original splendour, they notice the presence of contemporary works of art.

This operation returns a piece of the town’s history to its citizens – Palazzo Bellini today becomes SPA | Spazio Per Arte (space for art).
