Little Italy is a tribute to the Italian cityscape. This painting is of an alley in the famous Campo di
fiori situated in the Piazza Nivona district in Rome. The name literally means fields of flowers as the
area was a meadow in ancient times. Campo di fiori was chosen to represent Italy because of its ancient importance and also because of a common architectural style. The alley is shown as unending to represent the continuity one finds in the district of streets leading to one another.
Beautiful small flowers hanging outside the windows or doors are a common view across the Italian
landscape. They also show no matter how big or small the house is people take pride in their dwelling. A sight encountered several times while visiting the old part of the city was that of women standing at the windows and talking to their neighbors or just watching the going on in the streets. As it was decided that no human figures will be painted in this landscape, flowers then provided a great metaphor for people.

The walls are painted in the traditional colors used since ancient times in Rome. The street pavements are marked by dark brown strokes to indicate a busy and used street marked by foot prints. The narrow look towards the center shows that as one goes further one becomes more and more intimate with the environment, eventually becoming a part of it.  

A beautiful and colorful oil landscape painting for your home decor and art collection.
