1971-1972 · Study and experimentation

With this experience he declared his year zero and he returned to Sicily, and precisely to Trecastagni on Etna, where he devoted himself to the study of the psychology of form and colour. He verified the theories of his spiritual companions, Klee, Kandinsky and Itten, in deep observation of nature and through intense painterly experimentation. He studied history of art, mathematics and geometry and continued his experimentation through an obsessive search for harmonic proportions and chromatic accords. In December 1972 he was given the chair in Painterly Disciplines at the National Artistic High in Catania.
