“Partenopea” is a collection of six objects that materialize the profound connection between an ignimbrite rock and a city landscape that has been carved out of its foundation. The shapes are drawn from two distinct concepts, although intertwined by the anthropic action characterizing the surrounding: the former symbolizing the movement in elevation, the latter representing the solid-void relationship resulted from human intervention over 2.700 years. Naples is a city built on the tuff and with the tuff, a homogeneous reality where the architecture of man has altered that of using the same material to model a total and complex urban nature, environment. This authentic continuity narrates the violent contrast and mysterious spaces but also perfect integration between natural and artificial.
