LUCA REFFO, Monday/The Secret Week, 2011, watercolour on paper, 11 x 9,2 cm.
The project “The Secret Week” is based on seven paintings, like the days of the week that composed the secret diary of Marquess Casati Stampa.
In the Green Book the Marquess reports in the form of a diary the sexual adventures of his wife whom he murdered with her lover before committing suicide.
The seven days of the week are seven obscene images taken from the 1500 pictures found by the astonished detectives who were searching the house after the crime.
In 1974 Silvio Berlusconi acquired the property of Villa San Martino Casati Stampa in Arcore with the help of Cesare Previti, guardian of the then minor daughter of the Marquess, Annamaria Casati Stampa, and made it into his personal residence.
The sexual scandals associated with the mansion seem almost to open and close the last fifty years of Italian history.
