Franco Borghi Lombardo is a self-taught artist who began to exhibit his art in 1972.
His work is like a curtain that opens onto a magnificent, highly personal representation of the drama in his life. His art is inspired by the many villages of Italy, offering ancient themes and traditional values. The harmony of his colours and the imagination and arrangement of his opera-style fantasy figures are magic touches that develop a story with endless possibilities for the viewer.
