I think in my career, I was very lucky to be surrounded by amazing people who helped me. Sometimes it was a small push which was needed, sometimes it was a bit more. Nevertheless, that was something I really found helpful, and I am incredibly grateful.

Francesco is one of these people. I had no idea how hungry I was for his book until I opened the first page. Before I realized it, I was caught up in the pages, again and again. This world is filled with great artists who have learned how to express their way of art.

My sincere and grateful appreciation for your amazing work!Corona: THE COMPLETE GUIDE is an eyeopener and a stepping-stone to next level! Best purchase for knowledge so far!

“Grazie mille” Francesco, you are officially one of my heroes!
