Faith Shared presents a dialogue with Filippo Rossi, a well-known master in the field of sacred imagery, as well as 31 images of his work. Born in 1970 and exhibiting since 1994, Rossi has been exploring the themes of Christian sacred art for over 20 years. In Faith Shared, he answers questions about art, creativity, faith and inspiration posed to him by Timothy Verdon, a friend and colleague, as well as Director of the Florence Duomo Museum and Academic Director of the Mount Tabor Ecumenical Centre for Art and Spirituality.
