Artist Rocco Persia was born and works in southern Italy.
A master of several mediums, he works mainly with glass: stained glass windows, intricate mosaics and fine furniture.
His paintings and illustrations depict places, memories and dreams mirroring all aspects of the human experience.
The 2014 Calendar illustrations by Rocco Persia reflect his distant childhood memories and the stories passed down to him by the town elders: scenes of everyday life, trades carried out on the street, extraordinary facts, curious situations and even the grotesque, whatever strikes his fancy.
All this and more depicted with simple strokes like the footnotes of a journey made from the past.
