Cavalleria Rusticana

Enamel and oil, 60 x 151 x 68.2 cm
This refrigerator pays homage to the decorative style that distinguishes Sicilian cart painting. The front panel features the image of the Archangel Michael impaling the demon. This choice of subject reflects the tradition of painting a protector, or patron saint of the patron’s city, on the bed of the cart, called the cascia. On the sides are scenes from “Cavalleria Rusticana”, the opera based on a novella by Giovanni Verga and composed by Pietro Mascagni. On the left, Santuzza begs her fiancé Turiddu to not go to church, where he would encounter Lola, wife of the cart driver Alfio who loves her desperately; on the right Alfio and Turiddu challenge one another to a duel. Full-length portraits of the two men and two women are painted above and below the representations of the two episodes.
