A painter solidly educated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, he took part in 15 Venice Biennials. Exponent of a realism lit by strong colors and an expressionist interpretation of the tract, he had a solid reputation in Italy and abroad. Very well known in the post-war period for his landscapes characterized by the appearance of a great reddish or rosy sun, which is repeated several times under different skies, he was a very flexible master able to span all artistic techniques, obtaining for example particularly happy results in the field of fresco. In the work presented here, the still life is firmly set on a large table on which appears a multicolored tablecloth, which then leaves room for the appearance of a species of great demijohn. The background is characterized by the typical red of Saetti, embellished with yellowish brushstrokes that thicken in the upper part. It is therefore the work of a very interesting author, who always refused to fully embrace abstractionism, being better able to interpret the taste of Italian figuration.
