Meet the correspondents: ROME > Benedetta Dossi


"I love to draw. I express myself with strong lines and quick color. I try to sketch buildings, people, furniture, cars, as if they were always on the go.

I spend one hour in the bus to get to work. I take my notepad and draw looking through the window people running, reading, standing, taking the dog for a walk, people laughing, talking.

In the weekend I go walking around Rome, reading books regarding its popular legends and draw its bridges, squares, monuments, walls.

My dream is to travel and embrace other cultures, and capture their vitality in my carnets. I would explore the word slowly, open my arms, breathe in deeply and listen.

That is drawing for me, simply listening."
