    A beautiful large poster map of Italy by Nicola Simbari published in Rome at Salomone by the Italian Ministry for Foreign Trade as advertisement for Italy’s myriad world-class wines, with each region noted for the wine which it produces. Superb colors and lovely vignettes through the map.
    Nicola Simbari (1917-2012) was born in San Lucido, Calabria And grew up in Rome, where his father was an architect for the Vatican. At the age of 13, Nicola enrolled at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma and in the 1940s he began devoting himself to painting in a studio at via del Babuino in central Rome. Geometric forms and architectural structures are incorporated in almost all of his work. Using stunning colors and favoring brilliant tones, he paints with a palette knife and achieves great depth with this technique. Simbari’s paintings are full of light and energy. He developed a distinct style which stemmed from his impressions of life, nature and the Mediterranean at an early age.
