Over the years I have never thought of codifying, in a written way, the compliments and positive thoughts received by the artists and professionals from Art, Culture and other sectors involved reference to personal professionalism.
From this point and analysis, I’m starting to report a selection of relatively recent reviews. Unfortunately, several of these have gotten lost in the evolution of technology because letters are no longer written.

– The solo exhibition in Agrigento, at the Griffo Museum, after those in Treviso and Mantua, is my third exhibition curated by you. I know the scrupulosity and professionalism with which you face every event, from the critical text to the elegant preparation and, knowing you better now, I deduce that the key words to better plan an artistic event with you are: talk little and work. The result will certainly be impressive. Awesome and strong professionalism!

Cinzia Bulone, 2023

– Thanks Alain!
In this world full of arrogant bandits and shopkeepers, meeting someone like you is very rare. With your professionalism and love for art you have curated an exhibition at the Casa del Mantegna in respect of my artistic path, highlighting my works to the maximum. In your critical text you have summarized my poetics at the best, also entering into technical details and philosophical ideas that only a sensitive soul like your could underline.
Wishing for future collaborations, Maurizio Monti.

Maurizio Monti, 2022

– With the event “Visual Codes” curated by Alain Chivilò I had the opportunity to confront the public through an interchange of emotional forms connected to my works.
All curated by Alain who, thanks to his experience and knowledge of the sector, not only ensured the success of the event but meant that I could deal with various segments of a vast audience, especially the youth with whom I had a remarkable feedback.
So, thank you again for your professionalism and patience.
Best regards.

Giuseppe Marcotti, 2022

– Dear Alain, i must say it was an important and beautiful experience from my side, meeting you better i appreciated you both as a person and as art critic and curator. Thanks for the presentation at the opening. Even the few words we said to each other spurred me to continue on this path and on the topics we are dealing with. Hello, Ennio Bastiani.

Ennio Bastiani, 2022

– Dear Alain,
I would like to thank you very much for the good cooperation since our meeting in December 2018 at the airport in Venice. Due the language barrier, you had been very patient with me and there were not misunderstandings.
In the context of the exhibition “Worlds” in the Casa dei Carraresi museum in Treviso, we spent two very nice days together, which I enjoyed very much. You also very lovingly organised an exhibition of my paintings entitled “Venice Feelings” at the Molino Stucky Hilton in Venice and currently a solo exhibition of 30 paintings entitled “Visions” is running until January 2022 in Mantova at the House of Mantegna.
Thanks to your tip I was able to publish an extensive catalogue of my pictures and with your video about the exhibition in Mantova you gave me great pleasure. I am very happy and grateful that we have been able to realise so many projects together and I hope that my age and health will allow us to continue working together for as long as possible.

Helga Gendriesch, 2021

– Meeting a free, scrupulous, passionate, rigorous, precise art critic and curator like Alain Chivilò has been a real fortune for me as an artist.
Attentive observer of the art world, free from any form of prejudice that makes him a passionate and attentive hunter of the evolution of contemporary art, in a historical period characterized by the confusion generated by advertising and commercial interests, unfortunately, not negligible.
I was able to appreciate his planning, imbued with solidity and rigor in judgment, freedom from social currents, free expressiveness which, at times, is converted into the objectivity of judgment, in useful tips for the artist.
Art, today more than ever, thirsts for critics who, like Alain Chivilò, know how to orient themselves with professionalism in the current labyrinthine world full of misleading advertisements and commercial interests that mortify pictorial research.
A phone meeting or call with Alain about the details of an exhibition, with a pleasant background music and perhaps a tennis match, becomes even relaxing. Great professional and, knowing him, a true “Venetian Lord”.

Cinzia Bulone, 2021

– Coming from Abruzzo to Eastern Veneto appears easy but it is not. My works in this well-kept museum place vibrate very much. Thank you for this opportunity through your professional criticism and curatorship.

Silvio Formichetti, 2020

– Alain it is simply PERFECT! I am very happy and congratulations to you for the interview. The introduction is also beautiful … true compliments!
I didn’t know that you particularly liked the work with the sea but the choice fits perfectly, because full of impact.

Cinzia Pellin, 2020

– Good morning Alain, I’m happy to hear from you. I always review with pleasure the short but interesting interview conducted by you in an elegant and professional way.

Roberto Miniati, 2020

– Sharing my new cycle of works at Casa dei Carraresi, Treviso, was exciting. Thank you so much for your critical text and the curatorship for this beautiful exhibition. You created to me a jewel in Treviso.

Feofeo (Federica Oddone), 2020

– Thank you from my heart for this wonderful, intelligent, and thought provoking text. I am greatly honored. The Barnett Newman quote is perfect!
You are an amazing curator and critic. I am deeply grateful to exhibit my work with you.
Thank you once again for this wonderful opportunity to show my work in such an historic and esteemed place.
I am truly honored that you are the curator and art critic. Your resume is truly impressive. I look forward to to meeting and talking with you soon.
I enjoyed meeting and talking with you very much. I sincerely hope we can continue our conversations and friendship. Alain you are always welcome to visit my studio in the USA. It would be a pleasure. Thanks once again for this life changing experience to exhibit my work in Mantua.

Donald Martiny, 2019

– Hi Alain it was really a pleasure for me to work connected and in synergy. We evaluate each proposal together. A big hug and happy holidays !!!

Alfredo Rapetti Mogol, 2019

– Being present in two areas of Casa dei Carraresi with my works is exceptional. Thank you for proposing this place to me, but above all, through your criticism and curatorship we have turned on the gray Treviso.

Andrea Marchesini, 2019

– To my dear critic Alain, with whom the elective affinity is on the high vibrations and frequencies from 432 Hertz onwards. With lot of affection, esteem, gratitude.

Feofeo (Federica Oddone), 2019

– Good morning dear Alain, I sincerely thank you for the courtesy and professionalism shown towards me, in planning my personal exhibition at Casa dei Carraresi in Treviso with high level organization, curation and criticism. Thanks again and see you for a future event.

Fausto Nazer, 2018

– The solo show at the Casa dei Carraresi is a fundamental step in my career as an art photographer. Honored for the opportunity and thanks for the valuable criticism and curatorship carried out by you professionally.

Riccardo Squillantini, 2018

– The monographs wrote by you dedicated to Marco Novati and Gigi Candiani brought new light to these extraordinary Venetian painters. The work with the publisher from Friuli was exceptional.
Congratulations again for these projects that are in a certain sense courageous, knowing the immobility and the approach of our local territory, but a duty for these well-known and famous artists of the past.

Anonymous in a public presentation, 2016

– Exhibiting my works, with the different variations of Moons, in this wonderful Venetian Villa near Venice is very exciting. Thanks to your criticism and curatorship project, I hope and trust that I will be able to enter in the Galleria F.lli Orler’s television starting on the one hand from your contact there and on the other from this co-curatorial collaboration that you have now with Giovanni.

Paola Romano, 2015

– The current exhibition projects that you have proposed to me, which I have enthusiastically joined, are taking my works in very beautiful locations. Thanks to your criticism and curatorship, I feel more contemporary.

Piero Slongo, 2015

– I find interesting your monograph dedicated to the painter Marco Novati. It has been written in a contemporary cut throughout unpublished documents.

Alvise Zorzi, 2015

– The projects curated by you in Veneto satisfied me. To display my photographs in Treviso, Casa dei Carraresi, gave me a lot of emotion but at the same time vitality. Thank you for your texts and for your professionalism.

Stefano Benazzo, 2015

– Reading the interview it has been like reliving the day spent in my studio. The same emotions of that moment and that day I felt and lived again through your text. Thank you.

Giorgio Celiberti, 2012

… … … …

Well, through a true, constructive and direct dialogue and contact I am always available for endless good artistic, cultural visions and projects starting from real human relationships based always on professionalism and not on everyday banality.

Alain Chivilò
