Studi profondi for solo viola is a collection of four pieces that represents an attempt to transfer visual images on the viola sounds, researching a special range of timbical effect and a forced (contracted and dilated) temporality. The  Egon Schiele extreme flowers, a real ancient rose aged in a bottle, the nocturnal flowers described by Gozzano and the impressionist way to search a direct contact with nature, are the fil rouge for a viola narration helped by the “Un poco largamente” from the Piano quintet op. 44 by Schumann.
