The flight of the falcon

The Maestro Anfuso in one of his trips - and precisely during the about three months he was in Melbourne - have had the opportunity to meet and know the stories of so many Italians who, for various reasons, had left their land to find new opportunities in Australia, but they had never accepted the concept of "definitive", deceptively remaining anchored to the idea of a "return" that prevented them from realizing that with Sacrifice and Labour they have contributed to make great that land, not their land, so they didn''t enjoy that haunting beauty they were living into. Franco Anfuso, inspired by those stories, realized this painting, dedicated to the sacrifice of all emigrants in the world.
"The flight of the falcon" was presented to prof. Vittorio Sgarbi during the 54th international exhibition Biennale in Venice in June 2011.
