Carlo exhibits his paintings in Italy and abroad and lives in the countryside near Gambassi Terme between San Gimignano and Volterra.
Painting and technique
Carlo Romiti has been painting for years using earth which he himself collects.
His painting starts in the very same moment he scrapes at an embankment and collects the first handful of earth. The pursuit of an ancient technique and the constant research on colour and its application are a source of inspiration.
