Marco Petrus’ muse is the the city of Milan, which supplies each day new ideas for pictures and paintings.
In the nineties Marco Petrus came up with colourful panorama paintings of Milan, in between closely drenched office buildings the dome of a church emerged. Petrus belongs to a group of painters and sculptors, who founded four years ago the Italian Factory. Milan (Italian: Milano; Lombard: Milan) is one of the largest cities in Italy, located in the plains of Lombardy, and is one of the most highly developed urban centres in Europe.
