Spleen è melancholy. It is the nostalgia that arises from the distance from the land of origin, from affections and traditions. Spleen is sadness and recognizing it, is missing it.
Spleen is not madness, it is awareness ... and it is also the strength that animates the authenticity of the expressive momentum from the sense of unbridgeable emptiness.
Spleen is the starting point and it is also the site of the vital stimulus from which the need to create arises.
