Walter Girotto, 1953 | Symbolic / Figurative painter
Walter Girotto was born in a small northern Italian town called Rovigo and it was May 4th when his family moved to Turin (Italy) to seek their fortune. The only things he likes to remember about his town of origin are the branches of the weeping willow in the small garden, two tin soldiers and a picture of a whale, drawn at nursery school when he was 4, under the incredulous gaze of a nun who was unaware that her admiring glance was to decide his life as a painter.
