"In the paintings of Giancarlo Savino man is still a protagonist and still resembles us, but he is not a survivor, nor a simulacrum called there to make an appearance, for a late protest against the shortage of time. He is the man of all time, individual and species, animal and philosopher, miserable and tenacious creature eternally in transit, eternally equal to itself not so much for the things we already know of her as for those that still escape us ".
