Who is Veronica ?
"Who is Veronica and why should you fall in love with her works? Maybe it will just depend on who you are."
Her story begins even before she was born.
Veronica (the fifth of 8 children) brought joy to her parents even before she came into the world. Rosvithe and Francesco were facing one of the most difficult moments of their lives. Daniele, Veronica's brother fell seriously ill at just 13 months of life. Doctors diagnosed him with a “sm fulminant meningitis.”
Her mother and father were prepared for one of the most terrible realities a parent can ever face, the death of their child.
Their world collapsed, and just as everything seemed lost, here's a small glimmer of light.
In Rosvithe's womb, little Veronica exult with joy.
Even today, she believes she has been spiritually close to her mother during her joyful and frightening 9 months of pregnancy.
The faith, hope, fears, and insecurities of the mother, are still imprinted deep in her heart.
When Veronica came into the world, she brought hope.
Daniele miraculously survived the disease, he began a hard path of disability that will accompany him for the rest of his life, slowly improving year after year thanks to the incessant affection and love of his parents.
That little girl, so small, was already aware that the attention and incessant love of her parents did not wait for her but for his suffering little brother Daniele.
Life asked too soon a little girl to be strong for her parents.
Life asked her never to tell the world that she missed her mother.
Veronica will be constantly looking for the" real love " similar to the maternal absolute love, a love that will never be completely filled for her. Veronica loved life, but unfortunately, along her way, she will meet many people who instead hate life.
And that's exactly how during her very first years of childhood, she began to take refuge and find comfort in her most irrepressible imagination. She was too little to rationalize and understand all the pain their family was feeling, she was too little to accept the incessable screams of pain of her little brother and to understand the whole world that seemed be so indifferent to what they were going through.
Veronica began to seclude silently and began to imagine, dream and create...
She decided to create a reality in her own way, and she did! A reality where everything is possible, where everything flourished, where all the animals and creatures of the world were close to her, where tears were actually only the bright stars and the reflections of mountain streams.
The amazement filled her heart, when for the first time she brought a drawing to her mother and saw her rejoice. She had finally figured out how to do it, how to tell to the world those incredibly strong emotions that she feels deeply in her heart, using a method that didn't make any noise. The silence of her drowings spoke for her. A continuous search for the wonders and beauties of this world.
Perhaps you will think that this little girl's childhood was a little sad, on the contrary Veronica describes it as the best time of her life. When imagination had no brakes, when everything was wonderful and everything that was sad or melancholy could be transformed using fantasy.
You may wonder who is hiding today behind the woman who became Veronica? What is hidden in what she creates?
All and nothing.
All the memories of the visions of that imaginary world that was given to that little girl , and nothingness because everything she imagined never existed.
Who is Veronica really and why should you fall in love with her works? Maybe, it will only depend on who you are 🤍
