This panorama is part of a series of 9 spherical drawings I made for the project "La Montagna nel Cuore e nella Penna", with with Luca Vascon and Moira Franco, Sara Rambaldi, Chiara Tronchin; Cristina Amodeo, Mattia Caracciolo, Davide Salvemini; Marco Paschetta, Laura Pedizzi, Elisabetta Percivati.
We’ve been visiting three different areas involved in the First World War and The Vaia Storm: Asiago plateau, Belluno Dolomites and Belluno Prealps. In each place, a guide took us in the most important spots, to get the traces and remains of the first world war and Vaia storm.
During our visit Luca took 9 infrared 360º panoramas and I sketched on location 9 equirectangular drawings. After the residency, the artists created an inspired illustration, screen-printed by Fallani Venezia.
When I started to draw those panoramas I was really scared about drawing spherical in non-urban spaces. Eventually Giovanni's (our guide) stories about the building and mountains and the beauty around me made me feel so relaxed, making them a pleasure to draw.
The series of drawings is collected in my first panoramic illustrated book "Schianti", I am very proud of it.
"La Montagna nel Cuore e nella Penna" is a project by Associazione Think, Say, Do; funded by Presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri and Regione del Veneto.
