  1. I love your work, Roberto! Incidentally, I lived in Napoli in the late 1970s as a child– they were the best three years of my childhood.

  2. Very cool stuff! I’m fascinated that many of your Lacer/Actions resemble igneous stone, i.e. marble, malachite, etc. Very compelling, interesting textures!

    And thanks for following my blog today! :)

  4. These are quite beautiful. The posters have somehow melted away into mysterious alchemical compounds pointing the way to eternity. It’s like they are whispering: “This way true happiness lies…”

  5. Hello Roberto, I have found your work through the link provided by little bits of Sheffield (whose urban photos I really enjoy). Your images are quite mysterious and although I can imagine glue and torn paper they transcend their humble origins. Wonderful to see – thank you!

  6. I found your blog via Linkedin and I enjoy your artworks very much! Spontaneous but very balanced use of colors, happy emotions and a touch of mystery. Thanks for sharing

  8. If you had told me that is art from the 1950s “Informel” school of art or Sam Francis or anything like this, I would have believed it :-) Incredibly beautiful!

      • Human-made things are often structured in an orderly fashion. On decomposing, disorder is being added. At some point, this process reaches a stage of just the right mixture of order and disorder for our perception to create the experience of beauty. This also happens on the decomposition of organisms (like leafs, for example). There is an aesthetics of decomposition as a result.

  9. One addendum to my previous comment: part of the order may comes from the decomposition process itself, so while the original, human-made order is destroyed, temporarily the object might go through a stage with some decomposition-caused order, e.g. a network of cracks forming some fractal pattern that has random properties but also some kind of regularity (examples in some of your pictures above). At some point, the object moves through a “beauty zone”, where there is an optimal mix of order and disorder.
    It is stunning how the results resemble art styles like Abstract Impressionism, Informel and the like.

      • I am thinking of expanding my “What is beauty” article, which is just a sketch, and these comments into a philosophical essay (maybe for my new philosophy-blog).
        We could also do a cooperation, a little book or an exhibition catalog with pictures from you and a philosophical essay from me (“Aesthetics of decomposition” or something like that). I have to try to bring my thoughts into a form where a broader audience can understand them. I just don’t have the time for it at the moment.
