All my works follow the "fil rouge" of INCOMMUNICABILITY's theme, albeit in different declinations: social distancing, interpersonal relationships, internal conflicts, gender.
Incommunicability: social distancing.
This diptych represents a "New Urban Mythology". In a suspended world where everything is possible and achievable but also claustrophobic and lonely. It tells the individual's transformation and evolution of and his metropolis at the time of Covid-19 and looks to a future of profound change.
It is inspired by Italo Calvino's "Le città invisibili." It wants to be an invitation to a deeper understanding of visible and invisible experiences, a combinatorial reading with the observer who finds himself deepening the various interpretative nuances, placing the accent on humanity's condition, which the web tool silently humiliates and demeans.
This artwork intends to reflect on the metropolises and the possibilities we have to live in them and escape them.

Created during the lockdown is part of a diptych that began with "Metropolitan Dog" last days of December 2019 and continues with "Penthesilea" in March 2020.
