Habitat, Testaccio  Oil on linen board 13 7/8 x 19 7/8 inches

ON VIEW THROUG 12/21 Continuing down the same street shown in my previous post Cassonetti Colorati, Testaccio, is this improvised ‘villa', complete with boarder fence and ‘landscaping’. I never saw the actual tenants of the caravan inside, but others who lived along the Tiber embankment seemed to have an understanding with the residents. There was a water hose for all to use, an electrical outlet for charging up smart phones etc, and someone who came regularly to leave food for a dog I never saw but heard (it was possibly kept in the closed tunnel at right-but I dare not approach it.) There are many such settlements all over the edges of Rome. Unemployment rates in Italy have been steadily growing since 2010. While homelessness numbers increased by 45% in Europe-the numbers in Italy TRIPLED during the economical crisis, meaning 48,000 people in Italy are homeless — 3,276 IN ROME ALONE! earning the city the 16th place on the list of 25 cities with the highest number of homeless.  Today, Italy’s far right wing government (Lega Nord) is amping up aggressive action against these homesteads. 
Echos of a Fascist Past: One month ago (November 14) hundreds of migrants and Roma have been left homeless following two days of evictions in Italy, as the authorities were “...restoring order to the country.” Meanwhile, the Deputy Prime Minister of Italy and member of the far right party Lega Nord, Matteo Salvini, has been using language reminiscent of Il Duce when he tweeted "a municipal building illegally occupied by 150 Roma was liberated” Where Benito Mussolini brandished “His Majesty, The Pick” Matteo Salvini, using modern means, said "I commit to cleaning up and come back with a bulldozer.” #terzaroma #viewsofrome #modernrome  #thethirdrome #thethirdromepaintings #onsitepainting #pamelatalese #rome #robertsimonfineart #fascistarchitecture #urbanpleinair #urbanlandscape #architetturafascista  #italianarchitecture #barochetto #testaccio #homelessness #tentcities #LegaNord #NewFascism  #economichardship

Excerpt from my Rome Day by Day journal:
...a few hours of sketching…um...five garbage containers. They are the WHOLE story- parked stoutly before a heavily graffitied wall. The composition is ALL graffiti, and not even particularly good graffiti, but what strikes me is the camouflage effect it has—all a blur of sprayed squiggles punctuated tropical greenery- cactus, enormous aloe plants and the like. I am standing a little farther down the road from where I met the Zinghari Kidz last year. No sign of them this time. There are people living in caravans all over Rome and a few of them shuffled back and forth as I drew which- according to my sketch book, I did from 1:30 to 5:45.  It was definitely time for a break. On the other side of the wall  is a large open piazza which once kept cattle before they met their maker in the abattoir- which is now, appropriately enough, a contemporary art museum (MACRO). Where cattle once loitered, children now frolic, and on Sundays there is a farmers market and local crafts (oil, soap, peace bracelets etc.,) for sale…. #terzaroma #viewsofrome #modernrome  #thethirdrome #thethirdromepaintings #onsitepainting #pamelatalese #rome #robertsimonfineart #fascistarchitecture #urbanpleinair #urbanlandscape #architetturafascista  #italianarchitecture #barochetto #testaccio #zingarikids #grafitti #AmaRoma #laraccoltadifferenziata

E poi c’erano fessure in cui ci ritrovavi il tempo perduto. E sembravano fatte di musica, di note e pause alternate, dove ogni cosa era perfettamente al suo posto, anche dentro l’animo di chi le osservava. Quel luogo, si chiamava armonia. .

La stazione di Milano Centrale fu inaugurata nel 1931 per sostituire la vecchia stazione centrale che sorgeva nell'attuale piazza della Repubblica, divenuta insufficiente a causa dell'aumento del traffico ferroviario dopo l'inaugurazione del traforo del Sempione. Il stile architettonico della stazione è una miscela di diversi stili, in particolare Liberty e Art Déco uniti alla monumentalità dell'architettura fascista.

The Milano Centrale station was inaugurated in 1931 to replace the old homonymous station that stood in the current Piazza della Repubblica, which has become insufficient due to the increase in railway traffic after the inauguration of the Simplon tunnel. The architectural style of the station is a mixture of different styles, in particular Art Nouveau and Art Deco combined with the monumentality of Fascist architecture. • • • • •

I was very honored that Minister Francesco Genuardi, Consul General of Italy in New York, came to THE THIRD ROME on Friday and spent time looking at the paintings. I so appreciated the visit from such a busy person! It’s both fascinating and moving for me to hear the Italian response to my pictures of Rome. This series, which is ongoing, explores a city to which I am mysteriously and profoundly attached. I paint to understand why. And even as I indulge myself in historical research (my favorite), the response is emotional. The vision comes through the heart as much as through the eyes; the paradoxes of modern Rome pulsating quietly. Its many stories are sensed from the soles of my feet through the end of my brush as I stand outside in dazzled, tragic, elated observation.

GRAZIE PER LA VISITA! Good vibes and lots and lots of conversation at Robert Simon Fine Art on Saturday. It was great to see Jane Dickson (sitting pretty with me, looking odd) Walter J Hawkes (not pictured), plein-air painter and ping-pong champion Diana Horowitz, Tim Daly & Sheilah Scully (smiling and then mimicking a Marmo), big shot architect Jonathan Marvel in discussion with abstract painter Jane Haimes, elegant minimalist artist Linda Stillman (no photo plz!), arts writer Milène Fernández (not pictured, alas!), and La Voce di New York writer Laura Wagner (also not pictured).

Ho scattato questa foto il 5 agosto 2018, senza sapere che la posa della prima pietra di Sabaudia venne effettuata proprio il 5 agosto di 85 anni prima.

The cross
The cross
I set up by a closed magazine kiosk where I’d have shade guaranteed for an hour or two. As I worked on this oil sketch, a woman stopped to chat and asked me if I knew the history of San Lorenzo, the neighborhood to my back. She explained that San Lorenzo was a left-oriented, working-class ‘quartiere' that resisted the growing fascist movement.  In 1921, she continued, the year before the March on Rome, the Fascist Party congress came to the city, and some 30,000 Blackshirts roamed the working-class sections of the city—especially in San Lorenzo— bashing heads in what proved a deadly effort to keep ‘dissidents’ in line. The emotion with which this woman spoke was so vivid, and it was only ten minutes after she walked away that I realize she my around my age –so wouldn't have experienced this thuggery first hand.

In many of my onsite encounters, the conflicts of history make themselves felt while I am simply working on the visual composition. The fact that this event of almost a century ago yet remained vivid for this woman, seemed connected to the growing dread many of us we are all feeling now. This group of paintings on view at Robert Simon Fine Art are as political and socially relevant as those I did at the erstwhile Navy Yard. To me, the story of Modern Rome is a tragedy-and also a warning.

LEAP, Stadio Flaminio di Pier Luigi Nervi Oil on linen over panel, 18 x 24 inches
ON VIEW NOW through December 21st at Robert Simon Fine Art 22 East 80th Street

In the mid-1940s Pier Luigi Nervi  developed the versatile material “Ferro-cementa,” a system of layers of fine steel mesh sprayed with cement mortar, which he used in the extraordinary Grand Salon of the Turin Exhibition Hall (1949). With this, building, Nervi became firmly established as one of the world’s foremost engineers, a reputation reinforced again and again by subsequent works, including the completion of three stadia for the 1960 Olympics in Rome, includingIl Palazzetto dello Sport and Stadio Flaminio which he designed with his son, the architect Antonio Nervi, between 1957 and 1958.

🏫 Palazzo delle Poste 📬
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Costruito negli anni '30 con una maestosa facciata che presenta nove colonne sormontato da altrettanti statue, in travertino romano, opera dello scultore Corrado Vigni. Accanto al palazzo il monumento ai postelegrafonici caduti in guerra che si rifà all'architettura del @ventennio fascista. Il palazzo si erge sulla piazza Matteotti, comunemente conosciuta come Piazza Poste, su cui si affacciano la casa comunale, la Banca d'Italia e signorili palazzi: al centro della piazza una vasca con una fontana rappresentante delfini stilizzati, opera dello scultore ragusano Carmelo Cappello. Altre opere dello stesso scultore sono riunite nella civica raccolta temporaneamente ospitata in locali della Casa Comunale.

Altre opere dello stesso scultore sono riunite nella civica raccolta temporaneamente ospitata in locali della Casa Comunale. • • • • #posteitaliane  #palazzodelleposte  #posteetelegrafi  #ventennio  #ventenniofascista  #architetturaromana  #architetturafascista  #architetturaurbana  #architetturaitaliana  #travertinoromano  #marmidiroma  #ragusa  #ragusaibla  #vivoragusa  #volgoragusa  #igragusa  #ragusa_bestphoto__  #likes_ragusa  #ragusano  #igersragusa  #ragusa_bestphoto  #ragusa_photogroup  #weloveragusa  #ragusasicily  #ragusaesitalia  #valdinoto  #valdinotosicily  #cadutiinguerra  #patrioti  #contentdreamer

Il Fascismo ha prodotto solo una cosa bella: l’architettura immensa e monumentale. Se non fosse il simbolo di un periodo storico da cancellare sarebbe una vera e propria meraviglia.

Marble Athlete and Big Cloud  Oil on linen over panel. 12 7/8 x 9 inches

I’ve expressed my perplexed fascination with this subject before, yet want to underscore the chasm between Mussolini’s propaganda and its actual result. The many marble statues of athletes around the Foro were meant to inspire fascist youth to a kind of fighting fierceness. Yet the Italian government could not promote its martial aims materially: There weren’t enough tanks, enough boots, enough food. The country was one of sparse resources and scant military strategy. During the war, half of the Italian soldiers were taken prisoners and held in labor camps. It took them some time to go back to their families, and the welcome was not always warm. The economic devastation was particularly acute in the South.  One need watch only fifteen minutes of a classic Italian Neo-Realist film to feel the searing sorrow of this era, and even admire occasions of courage in these hopeless circumstance. In Bosworth’s words: "…When all the huffing and puffing had been done, Italians had not become the fervent adepts and peerless warriors of a new political faith. Instead, in the best part of their minds, they had found solace in the understanding that, under a dictatorship such a Benito Mussolini’s, to endure was all.” ON VIEW at Robert Simon Fine Art 22 E 80th Street thought December 21st.

La Casa delle Armi di Luigi Walter Moretti, Gray Day [Oil on panel, 9  ¾  x 12 1/8 inches]

Part I of my lost post (forgive me.  I’m a fan) 
Luigi Moretti’s elegant masterpiece, La Casa delle Armi (The House of Arms, also called Accademia della Scherma, the House of Fencing), stands on the south end of Foro Italico and the many red painted buildings the brilliant architect and planner, Enrico del Debbio. When I painted these, Moretti’s gem was in sorry shape. The once gleeming façade of Carrara marble panels that flowed easily around the Casa’s ellipsoidal form had become dingy in places, and was pocked by missing panels. Completed in 1937 the building was originally designed to host the approximately three hundred students during the two-year course of fencing and other sports. The building was also intended for meetings, exhibitions, receptions and rituals, ad processions.  Il Duce was big on pageant.

La Casa delle Armi di Luigi Walter Moretti, Noon [Oil on linen board, 9 x 12 inches]

Part II: From what I understand – the Casa’s purpose was never fully realized, and, after the war, is was basically forgotten until the eighties when it was ‘repurposed’ as a bunker by the Carabinieri during the trials of the terrorist group, Brigate Rosse (Red Brigades) during l’Anni di piomo [The Years of Lead], the lowest point of a series of low points in post war Italy.

Evening at La Casa delle Armi di Luigi Walter Moretti [Oil on panel, 6 x 12 inches]

Part III: Today this building and the entire Foro Italico is again the property of [the Italian Olympic Committee [CONI] which, it seems, has plans to restore it. The work, a word I use loosely, is being done in a rather lackadazical manner and there is concern among preservationists that, if the project does move forward with vigor, the Casa della Armi will be altered and its essence erased as happened to Moretti’s gorgeous Casa della Gioventù in Trastevere.

FIRST HOURS: Marble Athletes from the Provinces Rieti & Messina Oil on linen over panel, 12 x 12 inches

In his article ‘Fascism as Heritage in Contemporary Italy’, Joshua Arthurs notes “….Of all the monuments built during the fascist Ventennio, arguably the most emblematic and evocative is the Foro Italico [which] was envisioned as a space in which to train, strengthen and discipline young bodies and build a new generation of muscular, dynamic Italians – and therefore one of the most vivid and complete expressions of fascist ideology and its aspirations for future generations.” So what did I see when, in 2017, I returned to the Foro with its many marble men of combat? I saw-or rather felt, cynicism, anxiety, and the extravagant effort that goes into maintaining a pose of power as the ground shifts beneath you. 
Trump visited Rome while I was there.  Riding around on my bike I indulged in a fair amount of apologizing to the various ‘vigile’ directing the traffic. They shrugged. Some laughed. They had seen worse. "Just wait," they seemed to say, “For now, your country is wealthy enough to fight in 76 countries, but this can’t last. Look, your wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Syria have cost you $5.9 trillion so far. And are you winning? Your people are not ‘exceptional’ and so many soldiers who return from war and never return to themselves. Good luck to you” Again, they seemed to say, before waving me on.  #terzaroma #viewsofrome #modernrome #stadiodeimarmi #marmodicarrara #thethirdrome #thethirdromepaintings #pleinairpainting #pamelatalese #foroitalico #rome #robertsimonfineart #sculpture #coniroma #fascistarchitecture #robertsimonfineart #thethirdromepaintings #pleinairpainting #pamelatalese #rome #urbanpleinair #pleinair #oilpainting #urbanlandscape #contemporaryart #urban #20thcenturyitalianarchitecture #architetturafascista #ventennio #ventennionero #rationalistarchitecture #razionalismo #EnricodelDebbio

LAST LIGHT: Marble Athletes from the Provinces of Rovigo, Messina & Rieti  Oil on linen board, 12 x 9 5/8 inches

Regarding what the twenty year dictatorship left in its wake, R.J.B Bosworth states in his excellent MUSSOLINI’S ITALY [2005] "…For all their blatant ferocity, Fascist words were regularly open to negotiation and amendment in their meaning. Moreover, words apart, Fascism didn't not proffer a sunlit third way to its people but instead visited upon them the Second World War, humiliation in Greece, the casual loss of the liberal and Fascist overseas empires, mass murder in Slovenia and other Balkan territories, the withering away of the nation on 8 September 1943, and the death toll of the RSI, German and Allied occupation and a kind of civil war which was prolonged for some months after Mussolini’s death…” Given their grim and hopeless history, I remain astounded and grateful that the Italians are the ‘bravi genti’ that they are.

Children’s School, Piazza Longobardi, Garbatella Oil on panel, 12 x 9 inches

I have quipped that “Benito Mussolini was the Robert Moses of Rome, each ‘master builder’ with his megalomaniacal view of what the city should look regardless the people who actually lived in it.” Mussolini’s Third Rome was one of constant and remorseless demolitions in the city center that outpaced the building of new neighborhoods on the periphery. In the early 1930’s, propaganda over proper planning, left at least 25,000 Romans homeless. Some homeless families lucky enough to find housing migrated to new peripheral ‘rioni’ such as Garbatella. Garbatella founded in 1920 and built by the Istituto Case Popolari on the project of the architects Piacentini and Giovannoni was based on the English model of “The Garden City” During this first phase of development, buildings in Garbatella flaunted a “barocchetto style” decorated with historical motifs and details from various periods of Italian architectural history, and ornaments ranging from the artful to the zany. And what child wouldn’t want to go to school in a zany building?
