Surprise from outer space | Sorpresa dallo spazio profondo, acrylic on canvas, 90×60, 2005

The title of this one is exactly the same of a short story of mine, Surprise From Outer Space  (that you can download). The painting, which came out first (2005), has nothing to do with the story. The homonymy is purely coincidental. By the way, a detail of this painting serves as header for this very blog.

Il titolo di questo è esattamente lo stesso di un mio racconto, Surprise From Outer Space. Il dipinto, che è arrivato per primo (2005), non ha niente a che vedere col racconto. L’omonimia è puramente fortuita. A proposito, un dettaglio di questo dipinto funge da testata proprio di questo blog.
