Artist's description:

For many reasons I'm spending a lot of time in one of the most beautiful Italian towns: Bologna. During past months, I've found an abandoned negative near to my house: I was so curious about what was photographed in that I decided to bring it to the lab and develop it. I've found some scratched photos of a nice woman having a vacation in Sardinia; I was so deeply inspired by what I found that I decided to make a portrait of her, with a strip of paper within her lips in which we can read: "Via Camillo Ranzani XIII, Bologna, anno 2015", the place and the year in which I've found the negative. In secondary images you can find also the photo that inspired me for this painting: isn't it beautiful that hidden smile?
