Linked to the book Storia di un quadro (Corraini 2006), which tells the story of "Venezia, febbraio 2006", an oil on canvas that Maria Morganti started on 29 November 2005 and finished on 9 February 2006. Day after day, the Milanese painter spread the colour in overlapping layers, covering almost the entire canvas: the result is not a simple monochrome painting, but a surface where the progressive layers of colour, signs of the time elapsed, can be read on the upper edge of the canvas. A poem by art critic Barry Schwabsky completes the book, which is the same size as the painting.
The artwork is created by applying the same principle of superimposition to a new technique for the artist, serigraphy: here the successive layers of colour are revealed not on the upper edge as was the case for the canvas, but on the sides, thanks to the different inclination of the chromatic layers.
