Hello my dear Steemians and Art Fans,

 

Today I wanted to take part in the Contest and with my example I would like to invite everyone who also like me can say:

 


I love Italy.

My post I decided to do with showcase of Artworks that was inspired by this beautiful country and their famous people, there are so many things we could tell about Italy and it is not possible to embrace everything in one post so here it is a little contribution but from the bottom of my heart.

To start the post I wanted with one of my first pastel work that I was inspired by the beauty of the wine fields in countryside of Italy, the motherland of many different types of wine, I believe almost everyone had such moment when enjoying the view and tasting one of the nice Italian wine, therefore:

My first acquaintance with Italy


 

Leonardo Da Vinci who was born in Vinci, in the region of Florence, Italy.

Going back to the roots I can say that first time my acquaintance with Italy was in my childhood, when I heard about the most famous personality who has origin in Italy and who has left a tremendous impact in different fields like Art, Architecture, Engineering, Human Anatomy and invention. While in school we had the Art classes and it is Mona Lisa who made me stun when I saw his work. Except Art, his skills in studying human anatomy had also left an impact on my future career and made me interested in medicine that I decided to dedicate my life. So both of us have two things in common: Art and Human Anatomy

 

Leonardo Fibonacci from Pisa, Tuscany

Leonardo Fibonacci is very well known to everyone because his name is connected with the basics of Mathematics and starting early math in school, you might also leaned this wonderful sequence of Fibonacci, that sequence you also can find everywhere in nature as Fibonacci spiral or Golden Ration spiral. For those of you who know what Fibonacci sequence is, may find this fact interesting too:

“nobody knows what is the birthday date Fibonachi has, his fans celebrating his birthday on November 23 (mm/dd) the digits in the date form a Fibonacci sequence: 1,1,2,3.”

That is my Drawing of Leonardo Fibonacci that I found in literature, it was no photography that time therefore only a drawing

Gaius Julius Caesar

 

Of course talking about Italy we can’t miss this famous Man who has conquered almost the whole Europe and North Africa. Gaius Julius Caesar, was a Roman general and statesman who played a critical role in the events that led to the demise of the Roman Republic and the rise of the Roman Empire. From our history lessons I remember we were told by our teacher that Caesear could simultaneously talk, listen and write. I was very excited about this skill, like my other schoolmates and we also tried our best to be able to develop those skills, although I do not know if this is a truth.

All three famous people are originating from Italy and all of them left such tremendous impact in the history of mankind that simply that makes me to love Italy.

Venice-my favorite subject for Art


 

My favorite place in Italy and actually it is only one that I visited so far is Venice. The place with water channels, gondolas, old architecture. The reason why I wanted to visit it because it is a favorite place for many Artists in the past and now, you can see the street Artists doing the beautiful Painting and many people just stop and observe how this beauty is created.

It was the time when I was on internship in Vienna and for Saturday together with other students we decided to take a train over night Friday to Saturday, spend day in Venice and travel back again over night. Unforgettable time, after seeing so many documentary movies and then to be able to see it live.

Si vede che c'è amore per l'arte....ma devi venire più spesso in Italia..!
Il tuo post , pr ora lo porto anche sul mio profilo twitter!

Thank you for lovely comment, I even have not noticed how many Artworks I created that were dedicated for Italy. Thank you for sharing the post on twitter :)

From our history lessons I remember we were told by our teacher that Caesear could simultaneously talk, listen and write. I was very excited about this skill, like my other schoolmates and we also tried our best to be able to develop those skills, although I do not know if this is a truth.

In our country there is even such an expression "oh, you are like Caesar!" When they talk about the ability to do several things at the same time. :)
