Paolo is busy putting the final touches on his new collection of 

paintings, which is a rather eclectic mix of subjects.

It will be uploaded here sometime later this month.

Until then, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the gallery in Varenna

will remain "Open by Appointment Only".

Warmest regards,

Melita (& Paolo)
