Sergio Difficili

Sergio Difficili was born in Livorno in 1925, and he is the last one of the Macchiaoli’s movement. He is a self taught, he did not attend art studies, or clubs or cultural environments: his shy and introverted nature contrasted with all forms of attendance.
His favorite subjects are those of the Tuscan Maremma and in particular: farmers, old people, laundresses, musicians, animals such as cattle, horses, sheep, and at last but not least, the sea, his sea, from which it will never depart.
