you have not said how many windows and doors you have to paint.
but, in my opinion, it is more efficient to prime and paint with the brush.
if you are not going to paint the walls later, the air spray takes a long time
to mask tape everything off to protect from the over spray.
I lived in Northern Sardinia for 3 years and never saw anyone using a sprayer.
but – that was many years ago when everything was done “Old School”.
the electric sprayer Pistola a spruzzo elettrica nuova for 30 € is about $35.00 USD.
so it is not all that expensive and may or may not work for your projects.
here in the US, that is what we call the Harbor Freight model. (a cheap brand name).
people here in the USA like to spray everything because they have the compressors
and the appropriate equipment and space to do it. again, I recommend the brush.
buona fortuna amico mio
