Bella Italia, Italy through the eyes of an Artist by Pat Fiorello

Pat Fiorello has been teaching painting at Il Chiostro for several years.  This book contains over 80 of her paintings of Italy, including many from places which will be familiar to Il Chiostro alumni:  Lake Garda, Tuscany, Florence, Siena, and Venice.

Fiorello invites readers on an irresistible visual journey to share in her most vibrant memories of Italy—its grandeur and splendid views of sparkling blue lakes, breathtaking hilltops, quaint villages and sunlit gardens. Because of her reverence for exquisite light and color, the works of art emanating from Fiorello’s easel beckon viewers to open their eyes more fully, and to breathe in all the enchanting sights—near and far—that the world has to offer.

Testimonial for Pat’s Zoom classes:

I absolutely loved this way of learning , i wasnt sure how an art class on zoom would go , because this was my first one , but i think it is so much more intimate the way you did it .. i was over your shoulder like i was beside you …SO MUCH BETTER! This was great , the details,  even when you just smudged with your finger the view was invaluable to me because that is how i learn.   – VW, 2023
