“Whenever I look at Giacomelli’s landscapes – so loaded with symbolism – I am convinced that he was constantly searching for his mother, and by extension for his own origins, in the earth and sky and water, through an authentic artistic process that integrated the experience of the inner womb with that of the outer world.” (Valtorta, 43)
