The surreal atmospheres that have characterized our cities in 2020 still echo in our minds: empty streets, deserted squares and a deafening silence. In the largest Italian cities, as well as in small villages, public spaces have undergone a disruptive transformation, an emptying of people, voices and souls. As if a long night had settled on them.
A representation that recalls the first nineteenth-century photographs, when the long hours of laying prevented the instrument from "fixing" the moving figures on the plate, but which compared to these reveals a suspended time, devoid of vital energy, emptied of the intrinsic meaning of space public. The work Rinascita by Maurizio Rosella fits into this imaginary, subverting its perception.
The square meters of the Piazza del Duomo in Orvieto will be animated by an ordered sequence of white spheres to symbolize a re-appropriation of space by the community. A testimony of the desire to return to travel, play, play and share the city.
A work of Land Art with an ephemeral and temporal character, a surprise, which can be told both by those who will experience it in person, and through a conspicuous photographic and video documentation. The public, whether they are occasional visitors, tourists or locals alike, will all be part of the work by integrating and interacting with it, crossing it in its spaces between the spheres and sharing the new geometries, during this single day groups of dance and artists who lack musical accompaniment, a bit like mimes among the spheres and tourists will perform their movements in silence as if to reaffirm the taste for form, whether it is purely physical “or exquisitely Architectural.
The Opera born from the mind of Maurizio Rosella integrates with people and space, thus making it one with a changed time, new, uncertain and severe in its relevance, but full of hope.
