She has been exploring India for several years and has written numerous articles about this country on the Italian press. What brought her to the subcontinent was not only her passion for this country but the extraordinary story of her great-uncle, the painter Antonio Moscheni, who was born in Stezzano in 1850 and who died in Kochi in 1905. At 35, when he was already a well-known artist in his hometown, Moscheni joined the Jesuits. He left for India and in Mangalore (in the state of Karnataka) he painted the St.Aloysius Chapel with extraordinary frescoes, so much so that the Indian government issued postage stamps with his paintings in the year 2000.
The Indian press (The Hindu, Times of India, The Deccan) has often spoken about Ms Rizzi’s visits to Mangalore.
