Dreamy and serene are the two characteristics that Crocetti impresses in this woman’s portrait, she’s snuggled up like she just woke up, with her head laying on her open palm, looking at the world around her. It’s the sense of slowness what is perceived through the languid and sly look of this eyes wide open dreamer: the calmness and the sense of contentment of a moment of pause, the fantasy of a thought born out of distraction, almost an invitation to let the mind wander among imaginary places, fading and ephemeral refuges that are, however, so necessary.
