"Storaro-Covili" is not just a BOOK, but a relationship & collaboration connection unfolded between artistic geniuses...

"The Sign of a Destiny", is the result of a meeting between two visionary artists who, after expressing themselves individually in their respective fields, embark on a journey together. 

The great figurative (and psychological) values that unite the two artists. About the meeting with painting and Gino Covili, sign of their common feeling of light, colour, and image (pag.265)

From the Author(s): ”We have shared our pictorial and cinematographic world since 1975, though we met some years before. With the sharp eye of two researchers, we study each other's works and talk about painting and cinema, about how one influences the other, about how they nourish each other in turn. The catalyzing moment in our relationship embraces the film 1900, directed by Bernardo Bertolucci (the epic spanning the arc of a century of Italian life) and the painting Discussion About Forming a Cooperative (the work depicting various people sitting around a large table with, in the center, an overhead lamp illuminating the group gathered around that Light).

Since we cannot recall ever having made the distinction between whether the painting was inspired by the movie's images or the cinematography was influenced by it, an image that has been ingrained in our memory has always been visually connected to the movie 1900.

The Sign of a Destiny is an encounter between two visionaries who, after expressing themselves individually as artists, travel a stretch of their artistic path together. The first section of the book depicts the journey of one of us who, film after film, seeks out and meets artists from all over the world who express themselves through painting that is not "officially" recognized; through less "classic," nonacademic painting far removed from official art, which has provided so much inspiration for many of his cinematographic works. This is evident from his research and writings, which are published in three volumes under the title STORARO by Mondadori Electa and the Accademia dell'Immagine. WRITING IN LIGHT, and based on research

The second part is wholly devoted to the direct relationship between us, and between painting and photography. On this journey, between CINEMA and PAINTING, we meet, we become friends, and we discover together forms of creativity that make us decide to realize a project that combines our works. A project through which we relive the human, social, and figurative history of the last century, which we have experienced and, to some degree, represent. A project that is completed by the pictorial / photographic exhibition with the same title A visual journey which, after an introduction to our most representative works, continues in a large area divided into four sections, where a combination of Paintings, Photographs, Gigantographies and Images whose composition draws on both Painting and Photography are on display, illustrating the discoveries that have emerged from our encounter. An exhibition that elevates our Vision and our Life to a creative level that would have been difficult to attain individually and which was particularly influenced by the human level we succeeded in reaching together.
