The Pleading City


Signed Dated Titled

40.55 x 34 in







View in a Room


The work was created in 2015 for Milano Vola Alto, a project and homage to the city of Milan, in which several contemporary artists took part. The aim was to show the changes that have affected the city and what has remained true to itself despite the inexorable passage of time.

Bencini creates an urban view of the city at sunset, the sky goes from yellow, to fiery red, to the blue of the darkness that is about to descend.

Florence, Italy

Florentine by birth and Milanese since ever, he paints since his adolescence, trying to tell through shapes and colours what he cannot express and spread in its entirety of reality and its mistery, without a word too much dependent from cogency. In a society where everything is dominated, filtered and mediated by digital and virtual, thanks to his activity of surgeon and dermatologist, Bencini still loves manual skill and the gesture of directly immerging and impacting with the material, transforming and molding it. In this sense, he loves being defined an artisan, as his friend Pippo Basile does, and exactly like him he considers his works, which derive from the manual transformation of the sunstance, one of the most sincere Human expression and one of the closest to the divine gesture of creation. Pier Luca Bencini has always conceived arts as a gift.
The proceeds of some of his exhibitions, such as “Oltre, il paesaggio ritrovato”, have been entirely devolved to the support of missionary works in Africa.
