"A "Succubus" in a character of latin superstition (the original name is "Succuba", which means "to lie beneath") and is a supernatural entity that appears in dreams and takes the form of a highly attractive enchantress in order to seduce men. This symbolic figure is present in the Kabbalah (where the fist wife of Adam, Lilith, becomes the first succubus) and in the demonic folklore of arabian mythology as well."

Fabiano Gagliano

See into the world of
Fabiano Gagliano is an artist driven by a love of drawing and of beauty. His mythical characterisations of the Bella Donna, while familiar to modern eyes and tastes, link to romances of the past, celebrating the mysteries of femininity. Virtuous yet sexual; both classical and pre-Raphaelite, if you like.
But in the background, Roman letters etched in stone hint at hidden horror: VIDE COR MEUM, inscribed behind Untitled’s haughty beauty, in fact a cryptic reference to Dante’s Inferno, via the music of Patrick Cassidy in the slasher classic Hannibal.
