Book Comment

Francesco takes us on a journey, a little adventure into the past, to rediscover the fascination of beauty, the meaning of paintings and relationships. He does so by telling us anecdotes, explaining moments and works by this artist who forged important links with leading figures in European culture and art.

Mystery, esotericism, symbols. But also links between exponents who have made history, freemasonry, historical events and family relationships are some of the elements that make this book an intriguing work.

Photographs, pictures of paintings, parallels and juxtapositions are other fundamental details that give value to the essay “The Roesler Franz family and the Initiatic Path”.

This book shows care and passion.
