Last days of this endless March.
We tried to be March-proof and to avoid the usual echoes that this month brings to our minds. We were not in the mood of going back to the same memories as we have been doing since 1976. We had enough of remembering and underlining every single year that March is and always will be not just a spread of 31 days and nights but a special period impregnated by the sounds, the colors, the best and the worst of Madoi. Though we could not avoid all this, in the end, i.e. resavouring the same things, we have set up a change in our approach, let's call it a new trend. First, this unusual pic, see left or above. Leit motif of the return of Madoi to Parma (2002), with our unconsiderate donation of an important number of Madoi's artworks (53) as legitimate heirs of Madoi's legacy, and the intense Exhibition following this event - in days like the present ones, this image represented a breaking point in Madoi's painting. Now, we welcome a breaking point in our patience, as well in other things easily understandable, as Madoi should not need such an old and decrepit liturgy to be remembered and considered. Second, an intense re-styling of our approach, aiming to an auspicable forgiveness by Madoi, and focusing in collecting, instead of donating, tributes we deem to deserve. Third, fresh and new alliances, meaning spontaneous, enthusiast, young alliances, devoid of shows, frills, archaic rules and loose from senseless affairs. And very active ones.
