Villa Charities is proud to present this powerful photographic tale of an extraordinary and unconventional relationship between the artist and his muse.

Tony and his nonagenarian mother Elia embark on a journey of discovery where art becomes the perfect medium to express the grief and wonders of living with Dementia.

Elia’s powerful features, wearing with pride the signs of the years past, lead us into unknown territory, made of simple discoveries, renewed pleasures, and everyday struggles. Poetic moments captured by her son Tony’s indulgent and loving eye; a visual testament reminding us that life with all its challenges is indeed worth living.

Ageing is one of the hardest truths that we are all inevitably called upon to accept. Luciani with this work artfully tackles a di cult and timely subject with elegance, warmth and empathy. Experience this scintillating example of how an artist and his muse can symbiotically succeed in delivering a message of hope.

We are honoured to partner with the Alzheimer Society on this project and would like to thank the Istituto di Cultura Italiano in Toronto for partnering with us on the programming activities connected to the exhibition.
