Verdi square in La Spezia
Musil said: "What is great in man is that he is a bridge, not a destination ........"
With the memory of this thinking, we have created a ''temporal bridge'' as a link between what was, and what it can become ... The memory of the Politeama, and its removal .....
the recovery of a place where art created the encounter between people and served as a ''social glue'' .... On the one hand the architectural footprint, that of Politeama, and on the other the imprint of the people who I have lived ... I imagined all those seated spectators, and I decided to create the memory through the mold body, the seat of some of them on the new audience .... I have also reviewed the actions of the artists and their sometimes ephemeral existence .... and I thought of something more mysterious and impermanent, like a footprint left on a shadow .....
