Was inaugurated by Cinzia Pellin, an extraordinary artist who makes the female universe the heart of her painting.

The numerous visitors were able to admire 15 paintings dedicated to as many women who, as the author said, have successfully achieved their professional or personal goals.

The aim of the exhibition is therefore of a real celebration of the female figure, caught here in the development of its professional skills.

Next to the rider, the only painting in black and white, we find the cycling champion of Lariano Marta Bastianelli, the model, the actress, the singer, the violinist, the classical dancer, the carabiniera and many others, portrayed with a meticulous and careful realism, from which shines out the soul of the women who have posed as models for Pellin. 

Some of them attended the opening of the exhibition and witnessed how being portrayed, for them, has proved to be a truly exciting and engaging experience, since they got in tune with the artist and have known and appreciated her on the human as well as artistic-professional level.

Among them the singer Amara, the violinist Giorgia Rossetti, the actress Annalisa Insardà, the model Stefania Saettone and the marshal Antonella Spagnuolo; were also present the director Michelangelo Pepe, who made a docufilm dedicated to this pictorial exhibition, the journalist Amedeo Goria and the actor Emanuel Caserio.

After a brief introduction by the curator Alberto Dambruoso, a visibly excited Cinzia Pellin took the floor, thanking all the models, each of whom was given a red rose.

Many participants participated from different Italian regions and also from Lariano, the town in which the artist has chosen to live for some years.



The liveliness and chromatic richness of the canvases has conquered all the public; moreover, who knows the artistic figure of Cinzia Pellin knows that the artist prefers the large portrait characterized by a meticulous and almost maniacal realism of the details. Above all, then, the choice to color a bright red lips and nails of the protagonists, details that become the focus of the works and which attracts the viewer’s eye.

A special praise goes to the organizers who decided to “revive” the canvases, inviting the portrayed women to perform: in this way the language of the painting has merged with the notes of the violin of Rossetti, the scratchy voice of Amara, the recitation of Insardà; The result was a truly engaging and fascinating osmosis.

Exhibited works



Salvatore De Riso inaugurated the Sal De Riso Gourmet restaurant together with his wife Anna De Nunzio, right next to his pastry shop in Minori (Amalfi’s Coast, Italy).

Next to the very famous pastry shop of Sal De Riso (former President of the Academy of Italian Master Pastry Chefs, ndr) on the Lungomare di Minori, a new restaurant comes to life defined by a gastronomic proposal intimately linked to the territory, in an environment characterized by a marked brightness and with bright colours, with an open kitchen supported by the use of cutting-edge technologies.

The venue, from an architectural point of view, is an exaltation of different styles, united by a “Mediterranean” soul, dressed in the colors of blue, white and many particular shades of coral. To embellish the environment there are important works by Italian artists: among all we mention a work by the Roman painter Cinzia Pellin: “Love”, dedicated to the actress Anna Magnani, who filmed some scenes of the film by Roberto Rossellini from the homonymous title.

“She, an unforgettable actress, loved to spend her holidays on this stretch of the coast and, just a few kilometers from here, she experienced her passionate love with Roberto Rossellini.” Anna De Nunzio.


I had the honor of participating in the inauguration and, in addition to tasting Sal De Riso’s delicious cuisine, I was able to admire the splendid works of art that embellish this wonderful place. And I am even more honored by the fact that one of my artworks representing Anna Magnani is placed at the center of the restaurant. The work is entitled “L’amore” and is inspired by Rossellini’s film of the same name.

It opens on April 1, 2023 from 18.00 at the Museo Venanzo Crocetti in Rome the
solo exhibition by Cinzia Pellin entitled Women’s life curated by Alberto

In the exhibition will be presented fifteen paintings that are part of the last pictorial project
developed by the artist in the last year of activity. The absolute protagonists of this new pictorial and exhibition project, as can be seen from the title, are women.  Pellin dedicated fifteen canvases to the single portrait, in some cases double and triple, of women who, reporting his own words: “they decided to succeed, women who made their realization a mantra, who chose to cultivate their passions, their talents and develop them in the work. Women who, beyond the stereotypes in which they have been chained for too long, have decided to realize themselves and have chosen to live 100%”.

In all these paintings highlight the extraordinary ability of the artist to return to the observer the psychological strength of each person portrayed. In fact, of every woman portrayed, Pellin was able to paint not only her figure but more importantly, her soul.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue with the text of the curator in addition to the
images of the works.

After the presentation by Alberto Dambuoso there will be the screening of the documentary filmed in the artist’s studio by director Michelangelo Pepethe performances of some of the women portrayed in the paintings and a wine tasting of Casale del Giglio, one of the sponsors of the event.

The exhibition will remain open until April 13 at the following times:
Monday to Friday: 11-13 and 15-19 / Saturday 11-19
Monday 10 April the museum will be closed

This is a painting project whose aim is to highlight women and their role in today’s society.

Very often underestimated, women necessarily have to work harder than men to assert themselves and play a decisive and important role in the world of work.

The women who have been involved in my new painting project will pose in various photoshoots.

The photos I will take of them will serve as the basis for the works that will be shown in a personal exhibition.

These women carry out different activities and are seemingly distant from each other, but what they have in common are their determination and independence.

I will represent these women in their private and working lives, whether they are chatting over coffee or working.

From cashier to entrepreneur, from model to dance teacher, from singer to actress,

from artist to sports champion, from dancer to gardener, winning women dedicated to their work and their passions.


I think that there are enough artists who talk about discomfort and violence in their work, I don’t think art should express only violence.

I don’t think that art has to light the negative aspects of society.

Sometimes it can also send a positive message, and that is my goal.

From September 11th to October 10th, 2020, the Galata Museo del Mare exhibition gallery will host an exhibition by Cinzia Pellin, entitled “The temptations”.

The event, which proposes about twenty oils on canvas, is curated by Luciano Caprile who critically introduces the catalog with its text.

Inauguration: Thursday September 10th at 5.30pm. With the participation of Nicoletta Viziano, President of Mu.MA, together with the artist and the curator. Some of the protagonists of the canvases will speak too.

Screening of Michelangelo Pepe’s video.

Cinzia Pellin paints the figure of Jesus surrounded by tempting women in an atmosphere between the sacred and the profane. The extraordinary interpretative ability of this Roman artist, manages to enhance the seductive qualities of the female protagonists thanks to a technique of refined elegance where black and white prevails to leave the role of narrative underlines with rapid touches of color.

The protagonist is the light that creates suggestive contrasts and makes the represented scenes three-dimensional. The expressiveness of the faces and the poses of the characters, thus reach a strong emotional charge.

The exhibition shows a male figure who interprets Christ while he is performing the Eucharistic rite of the Last Supper “wrapped in a white garment that seems to want to defend him from the surrounding world”. It is a Christ, as Luciano Caprile writes, who “is not disturbed by the seductive behavior of those around him. His gaze is turned to us, who looks and understand perfectly the role of temptresses, since they belong to our daily reality”. It can also be considered as a reflection on a modern Jesus, who transforms himself from a sacred figure to a deeply human one. Other portraits of splendid women constitute the corollary of an exhibition where female beauty assumes the role of constant visual and perceptual attraction.

Cinzia Pellin was born in Velletri (Rome) on July 19th, 1973. After the Artistic Lyceum she attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, graduating in scenography with full marks. She worked exclusively for the Old Art Galleries of Padua. In Holland she collaborated with the Van Loon Galleries in Vught where she held her own personal exhibition, while today she works exclusively for Belgium and the Netherlands with the Cafmeyer Gallery, in England it is linked to the Different Gallery and has exhibited together with the master Berlingeri at the Moorehouse in London. In 2017 her works were exhibited at the Villa Reale in Monza in the anthology “The Women Beauty” promoted by Caloni Transporti s.r.l. of which she became a testimonial.

Luciano Caprile was born in Genoa on January 14th, 1941. He currently writes on “Il Secolo XIX” in Genoa and on the magazine “Arte in world”. He has curated important exhibitions in numerous private and public spaces in Italy and abroad.
