The exhibition centers on two landscape paintings of different sizes, both painted en plein air during Fato’s stay in Pereto (Abruzzo region). The larger one is based on a daytime view of the surrounding countryside, described in broad brushstrokes and colors so bold that they border on abstraction. The smaller one shows the same landscape at night, in a darker spectrum.

Each of these paintings is accompanied by its own “double”: another portion of canvas with brushstrokes from the same palette, which create a mirror echo of the main work. The two pairs of paintings are displayed on their packing cases, which acquire a completely different function upon entering the exhibition space.
