A few messages to admirers of Paolo’s work around the world…

Due to the road closure between Varenna and Bellano, the gallery in Varenna is operating under our Winter Season Hours, a bit earlier than normal.

We are now OPEN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.  (Private viewings are still available… just with a bit more notice!)

Due to the many painting commissions that are in the queue for Paolo to complete (and ship) before the Christmas holidays, the next “Online Exhibition” is further postponed to some time in 2022.

Until then, Available Paintings will continue to be uploaded here (and marked with a  Green Dot).
