In chapter I, some of the artist's works are collected which show his search for hidden truths.

Katherine Robinson who reviewed the works of her first solo exhibition entitled Hidden Truths so she writes about this chapter of works. "The imaginary world of Emanuela Giacco comes to life in an indefinite space that is easy to perceive as the infinite. Without borders, except those of the four sides of the canvas, her representations are animated by mannequins and objects, masks and human figures that emerge from dark backdrops unfolding on planes rich in shape and color. Often magnified in comparison to the other elements, his warm and well-formed human figures try to reaffirm their belonging to our reality. They land with this intention, however, in a world whose dream narrative upsets any return to normality. There is no doubt that the dramatic structural setting of the representation increases the emotional impact of the scenes.The evocation or suggestion of an indefinable distance is an artifice often used by the surrealists who had grasped it in Giorgio de Chirico's first metaphysical paintings: urban visions with distant perspectives and a strong meditative and poetic pathos. These spaces that can be understood but not identifiable with a natural dimension, as in the paintings considered here, offer a strong theatricality to the scenes represented. The illogicality of the dream does not take long to be perceived in visions whose real protagonists are small industrious drawing mannequins who act as accomplices, sometimes as antagonists, with the human figures. The artist's pictorial technique, versatile, precise and loose in the construction of forms, rich in chromatic choices, also lends itself to the definition of extremely pleasing decorative elements, ornaments and weaves that give further expression to his painting with a background rhythmic, almost tribal, to its fantastic creatures ".
