«Ecco, infine, l'assoluta perizia di Francesco Antonioni maestro nella sovrapposizione di opposti elementi (un talento da seguire e inseguire) nelle improvvise accelerazioni, e le originali leggerezze.»
Mya Tannenbaum, Corriere della Sera, 29 June 2006

[Here it comes, at last, the absolute dexterity of Francesco Antonioni, a master in the superimposition of opposite elements (a talent to follow and chase) with sudden accelerations and original transparencies]
