In the course of his artistic adventure, Perina progressively recovered the formal post-Cezannian values of his first compositions which he had in a certain sense left behind when embracing the Chiarismo movement. In particular, the work in question reveals what can be even defined as a cubist approach, in that it treats the group of houses like solid geometries, and the hills behind like gentle half spheres, painted with combined colors. This was actually a brief passage for the artist. His creative path led him, in the years of extreme maturity, to go back to the technique of blotches and coloured streaks that characterize all of his many creations. The picture we admire here displays an unquestionable skill the depiction of landscapes, immobilized by the sun yet vibrant, clearly traced yet soft and welcoming.
