Claudia Ciotti, here has created a wonderful work inspired by a similar one performed by Pietro Lorenzetti (Siena, about 1280/85 – about 1348) who was an Italian painter of the fourteenth century, among the masters of the Sienese school. Obviously it is not a simple makeover, but the skill of an artisan-artist who knows how to retrace the wonders of the history of art, through absolutely different execution techniques. Here it is no longer the brushstroke on a canvas, but the one on refractory stone, which involves countless executive and design difficulties.
