Antrodoco 2021 “L’energia del sogno” (The Energy of a dream)

Location of piece: Underpass that leads to the town of Antrodoco

This piece is a visual narrative of an alternative reality, another world. Not a visual reality, but one which is translated through symbols that hark back to the surreal dimension of dreams and fairy tales: a narrative piece with multiple interpretations, where the viewer is the main character. The artist’s signature style is actually the magic of the imagination, which gives this space a new soul, while also taking a leading role in the rehabilitation of an undeveloped area. The story that is created speaks of Antrodoco and the surrounding valley and, at the same time, of the creative potential of a community that dreams of a future with itself as the main character – and is well on the way to turning those dreams into a reality.

Calcata 2022 “Un gioco antico (esterno)” (An ancient game)

Location of piece: external wall of the school – via Goffredo Mameli, 1 – Calcata (VT)

The common thread between the past and present, the relationship between the traditions, trades and crafts of the ancient village and “modern” Calcata.
On the external wall, there is an antique music box, on which a scale model of the historic village of Calcata has been depicted, and one of the locals, huddled inside the heart of the village, bears the weight of some of the modern buildings on his shoulders, including the famous Church of Saints Cornelius and Cyprian built by the architect Portoghesi.
Thus, the music from the music box unites the past and present, through the mediation of its eternally travelling local citizen.
On the interior wall, this local character, once again gigantic in scale compared to the houses, takes a surreal flight over the roofs of the village of Calcata, wearing a toy helicopter on his shoulders that contains some modern buildings inside the cabin, which once again symbolise modern-day Calcata.
