In the works, the protagonist is the Mediterranean, understood as "place prince" of his imaginary landscape of the soul where the roots of a culture Latin-greek. And 'the emotional intensity of a beloved land of Sardinia,
of Sicily, Mallorca is a perfect implementation in the power of coloristic Sassu,
in the chromatic richness of life that distinguishes his cards, his paintings and all his rich ceramic production.
"If we think that the myth of the Mediterranean has gone a bit 'all European culture involving painting,
sculpture, poetry, music and architecture, no doubt our artist emerges as one of its greatest interpreters

For the obsessive search for depth and beauty that this subject had in his path, for that
strength and the consistency with which the artist has been able to express and develop throughout his life,
the riot of movement and creative vitality. A visionary artist who knew how to explore and interpret
better, through his artistic research, that dimension "Mediterranean and mythical" seen and experienced as a metaphor for excellence of the "Theatrum mundi" man ".
