On the early painters of the Italian renaissance: "... those magnificent artworks resonated with my own personal imagery affirming the universal nature of art, capable of creating an emotional link regardless of distance in time and in culture. I attempted to reinterpret them and in doing so to create my own visions. They were an important source of inspiration during the years I lived and worked in the American metropolis, far away from the rarefied and somehow timeless beauty of medieval Siena.
This body of works represents a very meaningful phase of my research in painting. A research which lasted for almost 30 years and which created the base for my future artistic development which has led me to the realization of video and installation art.” Franca Marini, 2017
