A pupil of Natale Belli, then of Giovanni Fattori at the Fiorentina Academy, he was first among the tastiest macchiaiuoli, as can be seen in Young Tuscan Peasant, his first work, exhibited at the Promotrice in Florence. "Then he turned to a kind of decorative painting, bringing an unusual strength and animating it with the resources of his rich palette, which favors and accentuates red, yellow and blue tones" (A. Lancellotti). Exuberance of tonality and movement of shapes on perpetually sunny backgrounds. Apart from the critical evaluations around his painting, evaluations which they intend to subtly emphasize the vivacity of his palette and the violence of color - Nomellini is an unmistakable painter. He has an acute temperament and a very rich vein that often lavishes with overwhelming abundance: he interprets his world with typical frankness, far from schools, from influences, from aesthetic postulates. As he progressed in technique, he wanted to preserve the characteristic youthful momentum of his art.
