LA PIU' VIVA DELLE
"How much longer will you stay hidden behind a clay statue?”
The creation, inspired from the city of Pompeii after the catastrophe of the eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79, it is both a journey back in time and a personal vision of what the city is today: the casts, so real and human, the explosion, the parties so sumptuous, the festive hunts, the beauty and the colours of this eternal city.
A story that highlights the fragility of the man facing the nature.
What was there before and what do we see today?
Wonderful ruins that immortalize a city, people, animals, objects stuck in time.
An eternal something that is in stark contrast with the overbearing and destructive force of nature.
A volcanic eruption is tremendous, but how fascinating can it be?
See the beauty in the catastrophe, in the ruins. A mixture of fear and amazement where the end leads to a beginning.
Without forgetting the pain.
You cannot forget fear if you have gone through every part of your body.
A beginning that is as beautiful and exciting as the end.
The beauty of before, the beauty of today.
