Franco Fortunato

After his scientific studies, he trained as a self-taught person, studying three-fifteenth and nineteenth-century painting. The contextual interest in literature pushes him to create paintings in which he depicts vagabonds, turreted cities and other subjects of the medieval tradition suspended in the void and in surrealist atmospheres, in homage to Sassetta, Ambrogio Lorenzetti, Piero della Francesca, but also De Chirico, Magritte and Calvino. From the third millennium he devoted himself to pictorial cycles inspired by literary works, such as The Little Prince and Moby Dick.

He has made various murals on public and private buildings. Among these are some murals in Orgosolo, Cervara di Roma and the cycle Via Matris Gloriosae in the church of Santa Maria Maggiore in Caramanico Terme.

Receives the Santa Caterina d'Oro Award for Contemporary Art, 2010 edition.

In 2010 he made the Drappellone of the Palio di Siena in August.

In 2011 he painted the "Pallio della Carriera" for Carpineto Romano.

In 2012 he realizes in Carpineto Romano the monument dedicated to the anniversary of the Unification of Italy, sculpture in white travertine integrated with mosaics.

In the second half of 2012 he devoted himself to the realization of the paintings for the scenes of Il Corsaro by Giuseppe Verdi, staged at the Teatro Verdi in Trieste in January 2013, the year of Verdi's bicentenary, under the guidance of Maestro Gianluigi Gelmetti.
