““…My whole point is to transcend the subject. …Go beyond the subject somehow, so that the composition, the lighting, all around, reaches a certain point of perfection. That’s what I’m doing. Whether it’s a cock or a flower, I’m looking at it in the same way. …in my own way, with my own eyes.” . “
Dedicated to Robert Mapplethorpe. The room, cozy and intimate with private bathroom inside the room, desk, wardrobe area, has a balcony overlooking the historic yard within a particular view of the marble staircase and on the arms of the House of Castelcicala. Double bedroom.
