Malta for Italy, Marco Arcidiacono’s watercolours on show for Amatrice

In his watercolours, Marco Arcidiacono reproduces the colours of the Mediterranean by plunging into the beauties of the Mare Nostrum, one of Italy’s greatest treasures. His work will be on display in Malta in an exhibition to support the inhabitants of Amatrice who were struck by the earthquake. The watercolour exhibition entitled “Malta for Italy” will be opened by Professor Paul Xuereb at 7:30 p.m. on 1 December at the Italian Cultural Institute in La Valletta and will run until 13 January. Marco Arcidiacono received his training and developed his artistic talent at the Birkfield School of Art, also thanks to the teachings of Professor Gabriel Dechamps, who loved to paint the coastlines of the Mediterranean Sea.

He has participated in many collective exhibitions in the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Bulgaria, Romania and Malta and holds solo exhibitions in Brighton, Shambles York, Cork Street Gallery, Russian Gallery, Stuttgart Gallery and in the Sofia Gallery in Bulgaria. In the almost 50 years that Arcidiacono spent painting watercolours, he has faithfully reproduced the colours of the Mediterranean he is so fond of and that were also painted by his father, the great Maltese watercolour artist, Giuseppe Arcidiacono, who was also very well reputed at the Royal Academy.
