Kolkata/IBNS: Italian wildlife painter Maurizio Boscheri, who is presently in Kolkata, will be painting a mural at Gariahat in the southern part of the city.
The Consul General of Italy in Kolkata, Gianluca Rubagotti, highlights the importance of having an Italian painter in town.
Rubagotti says, "I am very glad that Maurizio, together with his curator Mario, finally made it to Kolkata. Of all the different activities in which he has been involved, I am particularly grateful for the mural in Gariahat, which will remain as a symbol of the friendship between our people, as well as a reminder of the importance of taking care of the wildlife and the ecosystem."
Maurizio Boscheri expresses all of his enthusiasm for the city.
Boscheri says, "I came to India for the first time a lot of years ago, but this is my very first trip to Kolkata. Although I have not been able to visit many places, I am impressed by how lovely the city is.
"I have interacted with some young artists and art students, and I have to confess their level is on average rather high. I
really hope I will be able to come back more often."
