To know and appreciate the Site should divide the material into separate parts: the first will be useful to explore Anna and its history, then you will be able to address the various facets of its business.
Starting point, his determination.
At 8 years old he decided to dedicate his life to painting, and 13 began their schooling: the first art school in Rome in the historic headquarters in Via Ripetta, with master Gastone Novelli; then the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice with Maestro Bruno Saetti, great fresco painter and Carmelo Zotti, metaphysical symbolism. At 19, he qualified the teaching of design and art history for secondary schools of the second degree and immediately began to teach in Rome, in the High School Paolo Sarpi. He teaches one year, during which understands that teaching art to students not interested in the subject, is not for her. He decides to continue studying personally, to go forward in the knowledge of art; in short, she begins looking for a new Master who can teach all the secrets of the art world. He tells his father “I’ll find him, maybe in Japan.”
In fact, he knows the prof. Ernest Kronberg, a native of Latvia: octogenarian, blue eyes and white goatee, physically powerful, big motorcycle enthusiast, lover in particular the BMW driving every day, even in winter, to visit his wife Tzera, un’arzilla, enchanting old woman who claims to have been a Russian revolutionary. Ernest is a really great person, stateless, cutting edge, with an openness that fascinates all, simple people and prominent figures, including Gianni Agnelli who entrusts his daughter Margherita why can learn drawing and painting.
Ernest has the ability, not common, to understand people and to help her. He chose Italy and above Capri, as the homeland of the heart. He loves to teach; She has several students and would like to convey to them the great wealth of knowledge accumulated throughout life, extraordinary and incredible in so many points of view.
Anna is 20 years old and so began to study in the prestigious atelier of prof. Kronberg in Rome, in Via of Columns, in the Palace Canova, right where once worked the great sculptor. Alongside the report of Professor Perez is one of the sculptor and that of Jacob, a court expert who leads a restoration workshop with many apprentices. A small world, with the doors wide open to all the stresses. Hence passes so many people, amazing characters, sometimes strange but all interesting; you can breathe the air of true art workshop. Kronberg is severe, very good communicator, an expert ‘s incredible secret but doesnt and gradually the students drop out. For him, Anna is the right person with her insatiable appetite to learn and to do it different.
Anna’s dream began to be realized. It ‘just what I was looking for so long. Finally a serious person with inexhaustible theoretical knowledge but also practical experience having worked as a set designer in the film and at the Teatro dell’Opera in Rome and as a restorer for major clients. Start a fruitful path, first as a student and then as active collaborator. Ernest is really exceptional, and 16 years fly by studying and working hard every day new alchemy, valuable knowledge and insights in various directions. At 96 years Ernest throws in the towel and Anna makes his way by opening a school is in Rome at the Palace Canova is in Tivoli, to teach the art techniques and Restoration. It ‘a success. People come from abroad to learn the famous “rules of art”.
The restoration of major and minor works engages and travels a lot for work with pleasure – on site – on works moved;. Works, sometimes very challenging as the restoration of the ship Elettra Marconi Telespazio, but also the banner of “Cartari” for Cartiere Miliane in Fabriano and many paintings sometimes precious: Paul Brill, Titian, Bellini, Bernardino Luini, Charles Maratta, and other minor authors, especially works on sacred subjects.
However, painting is always first.
The day of Anna begins with daily exercise, a drawing, even simple, possibly from life. At about 10, invariably, the ritual of coffee: blond, American, fuming. Then came the work, commissioned or to be proposed, sometimes the model or the model. Everywhere in the study, white papers and colorful paintings, tables, colors, the beloved watercolor, but also tempera, oil thin, acrylic, mat, glass jars with powder pigments and brushes, many brushes.
Anna seeks suggestions to find the right stimulus, the fleeting moment special, one that calls for the creation on the framework that is joy but also nightmare. Despair and total enjoyment. A perpetual motion around the object of desire, what – from time to time – the passion.
In 1994 Anna creates in Tivoli, along with other friends, cultural association Villa d’Este. It ‘an important fact that has a’ profound echo in the city. There is much to do to create moments of aggregation and comparison. It is organizing an event per month, ranging from painting to guided tours to special places and shows, book presentations and honored guests; It is even created the theater company “Tiburiade”, which brings to the stage only Satire. The Creativity Award Woman is the most important event and every year attracts people from across Italy and beyond.
Since April 2013 he has been Chairman of the League Rainbow: a great organization, founded and headed for 20 years by Bruno Tescari, which is fighting to overcome architectural barriers both is cultural, for a more free and just society for all. Bruno, passionate social and political issues was also fascinated by the ability to grasp the essence of life in a few strokes. He ‘was also the author of theatrical satire for which Anna has created several sets
So, we can say that the first step is done. We are entering into the sphere of Anna. Now we can understand, at least in part, his world: special, passionate, sometimes erratic, always miraculously poised. This set of experiences and accumulation of passions is composed of Anna’s life, constantly fueled by long sessions in front of the stage of life.
If this background has given an ‘emotion and maybe sparked a little love at first sight, then we can continue with more momentum in the vision of executives and, most likely, we can take advantage of a real treasure.
We must make the most classic questions: where is Anna? Who will have the desire to follow the path offered by his paintings and restoration, he will understand it for themselves; there are keywords that are good for everyone. It ‘s always a subjective relationship, chameleon at times. Let’s start.
