Deep knowledge of past masters, Gasparro captures beauty, secrets and making them their own greatness in a re-reading the original that combines tradition and new figuration and that in an ongoing experiment material and technical virtuosity flows into allowing him to bring back to life also ' use, now obsolete, oil on mirror. The exhibition, which in addition to the paintings directly inspired by Mattia Preti consists of further work by the artist, born in particular with the aim of developing a channel comparison between instances of contemporary painting and the expressive values and content of the paintings of Cavalier Calabrese , it made possible thanks to a range of works and use an intriguing and complex exhibition set up in the museum.

The composition is derived from the writings of the Old Testament "I have trodden the winepress alone, and of my people, no one was with me. I crushed them with disdain, trampled them in anger. Their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I stained all the clothes "(Isaiah 63.3) and in the New Testament from the Gospel of John in which Christ identifies himself with the vine" I am the true vine and my Father is the winegrower "(John 15.1).
