Alessandro Vitali shows paintings on canvas and wood. His paintings reflect Berlin as Alessandro Vitali sees it:

"The shapes of Berlin, its square angles, the voids and curves, all that appears in my work. Not directly, but as a trigger. In front of my apartment at Kottbusser Tor there is a big building, a kind of hollow block, and my work 'reads' that block."

Alessandro Vitali considers art as well as architecture as a kind of "writing", with art being the one easier to read for most:

"Whether the high rises at Potsdamer Platz or the disassembled Palast der Republik - this kind of architecture is seen by thousands passing it every day, without fully understanding what this architecture is getting across. Art has a big advantage here, it is immediate, and it is understood that it means to communicate."
