The sun entered suddenly in my atelier. Seated at a table, scrutinizing the lines of a drawing, in the flash of light reflected from the wave movement of the lake, I saw them ripple, and then, after a few seconds, turn various colors that went from rose-violet to light-blue green. All of the details of the drawing blended together and created a spectacular weave of shapes and colors. Enraptured by that mirage, I felt I was one with nature. It lasted for a few moments. I sealed it within me and entitled the drawing “Sole dentro” (Sun inside). I then translated it into a luminous artwork that enters the stage in the Prologue of the Storia dell’uomo riccio (Story of the hedgehog man).
