In the roman ferment, his artistic and formal research starts and the urban landscapes born, characterized by an innovative edit and drawn by a common and intimate everyday life where references to Cézanne, Bonnard, Morandi are echoed.
By the end of the 60s the space becomes more metaphysical and hopperian and from the next decade, with the definitely return to Sicily, he starts to paint the sea trying to get the infinite vibrations and variations. In these pieces he takes his research to abstracion's boundary nevertheless keeping anchored to reality. Simultaneously, he works to cycles dedicated to carub tree and Ibei mounts, realized with a pastel technique while, with the d'après series, he deals with some famous masterpieces by Masaccio, Signorelli, Michelangelo, Giorgione, Caravaggio, Vermee, Chardin, Friedrich, Bacon.

As Guccione said; "Current times doesn't persuade beauty. And this concern art, too. Nowadays we prefer ugliness, arrogance, even horror. Instead, I try to paint beauty: and I don't even care of being modern or not. I'm not even affected by being judged as not in line with modernity."
