Giotto once again reproduces Christian history with new perspective canons. From a coup of hand to everything that had been done up to then, and also in the Meeting of Giocacchino and Anna at the golden door, one is amazed by his ability to create the new while remaining in an absolutely sacred and sacral context. Giocacchino returns to his Anna because after a long desire to have a child it is finally fulfilled. The kiss between the two is almost a physical union of their faces, one cannot be distinguished from the other, it is a spiritual union for the joy but physical union in the act of kissing. The figures around Anna are emblematic, they reproduce the daily life that Anna was probably living before Joachim's return. Rejoice Anna, "barren woman who has not given birth, burst into shouts of jubilation and joy, you who have not felt pain" (Is 54, 1). Rejoice, O Joachim, for from your daughter a child has been born for us, a son has been given to us, and his name will be Angel of great counsel, of salvation for the whole world, strong God (see Is 9, 6) . This child is God. What can be stronger than the joy of a new life for two who certainly no longer had any hope of having it? And as the firstborn she will be the Madonna, the mother of Jesus, the apotheosis.

How reproductions are made

The artisans of ExpoitalyART make a reproduction of this subject with a unique mechanism . The image is in fact printed several times as a test, until the correct combination of color tones is found. Finally, a professional 12-color inkjet printer creates a perfect copy, which is double-checked by hand and left to dry in protected environments. The artisans spread a natural fixative to preserve the shine and sharpness of the image and package the product entirely by hand.

Appreciated and used today by true connoisseurs of quality, fine papers or pictorial canvases have an ancient tradition. Symbol of Made in Italy recognized throughout the world, these extremely refined prints represent priceless subjects that come to life in a new light.

When printing is carried out, it passes to drying which in protected environments and with precise temperature and humidity helps the colors to remain vivid and full-bodied. The following fixing serves to keep the colors as just done forever. In fact, the fixer comes directly into contact with the surface and creates a real physical barrier between the colors and dust or bad weather.

The choice of frames is then a delicate and precise design step . Beech, maple or cherry, each with its own peculiarities and colours. With natural elements, we have special frames with incredible brilliance and lightness.
The matching of the frames is clearly done depending on the subject. To help us in the choice, art experts and painting masters carry out tests and tell us which choice to make.
All reproductions are chosen and followed by our Italian artisans.
