Some time ago, we talked about Francesco Marzetti and his “textile intrusions“, about the fantastic characters made in pencil, fabrics, lace, threads and buttons. But this turned out to be only the beginning of a path that led the artist from Bagnoregio to create, in a textile key, famous pictorial works using the “simple” overlap of sewing threads.

Francesco says that everything was born during a delicate moment of his family life, during time spent in Switzerland for the occasion of the loss of his father-in-law. “Being unable to sit still without creating, in those days the threads were the only material I had available in my mother-in-law’s house, so I made the first work with the blue thread, Munch’s Scream… and just like that I couldn’t stop anymore. The thread that runs on the white surface is positioned, moved, superimposed on threads of other colors until it takes the form of the works of Schiele, Van Gogh, Klimt … “
