Marostica Castello Superiore Original Watercolour | Paintings of The Veneto, Italy – Alan Reed
Paintings of Italy
Marostica Castello Superiore is in a little town in the province of Vincenza, Northern Italy. Mostly known for its delicious cherries (Festival in May) and the live chess game (September every 2 years in even-numbered years)
The Piazza in front of the castle (castello inferior) became an ice rink for the locals to skate on throughout the day and into the night.
I held a solo exhibition of my paintings in Marostica Castello Superiore in the winter of 2005. It was wonderful to hear the praises and comments about my work by the locals. As I know little Italian it was a constant but exciting challenge whilst communicating. Fortunately my wife Susan has a much larger vocabulary in Italian than me so we managed very well between us.
I found the whole scene an inspiration that captured immense joy.

Artist Support Pledge
I am supporting the Artist Support Pledge. Paintings of the Veneto, Italy
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support and gallery work. Exhibitions and sales have disappeared.
In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress Martin Burrows has instigated the ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE
The concept is a simple one. Artists post images of their work, on Instagram which they are willing to sell for no more than £200 each. This Painting of the Veneto, Paintings of Italy are included.
Once I sell sell 5 of my paintings, I pledge to buy another artists work for £200.
This generous strategy was initiated by Matthew Burrows @matthewburrowsstudio and it has been successful in helping artists worldwide.
Anyone can buy the work. Every time an artist reaches £1000 of sales, they pledge to spend £200 on another artists work.
