The pion structure in Minkowski space is described in terms of an analytic model of the Bethe-Salpeter amplitude combined with Euclidean Lattice QCD results for the running quark mass. In the present work, a pion model previously proposed, which allows for a Nakanishi integral representation, is studied in order to verify the sensitivity of the pion electromagnetic form factor to small variations of the quark self-energy. In addition, we extend the previous work, providing the Nakanishi integral representation for the invariants associated with a decomposition of the pion Bethe-Salpeter amplitude.
