Giuseppe Falchetti is an Italian painter born in 1843 and died in 1918, known for his landscapes, still lifes and representations of wines and grapes. Throughout his life, Falchetti created a wide range of works, each with its own personality and flavor.
One of the main characteristics of Falchetti's paintings is the representation of Italian landscapes. Falchetti chose to paint rural scenes rather than cityscapes, to showcase Italy's natural beauty.

Objects are often arranged in such a way as to create a harmonious balance and an elegant composition.
