Description:
The Four Little Flowers of St. Francis (Quattro Fioretti di San Francesco) were commissioned from the Harvard University in 2017. The four musical paintings take inspiration from "Little Flowers of St. Francis" a florilegium divided into 53 short chapters, on the life of Saint Francis of Assisi that was composed at the end of the 14th century.

The fourth piece, "Fioretto XXI", (St. Francis and wolf of Gubbio). Is inspired by a medieval legend. The Wolf of Gubbio was a wolf that terrorized the Umbrian city of Gubbio until it was tamed by St. Francis of Assisi acting on behalf of God. The story is one of many in Christian narrative that depict holy persons exerting influence over animals and nature.
