Description

Certainly the ceramics made by Ferruccio Mengaroni are certainly not few, but Medusa is certainly the most famous and fascinating one. The large majolica, whose diameter abundantly exceeds two meters, today finds its place along the staircase leading to the Civic Museums of Pesaro. He stands there, in profile, as if for an ambush, as if on purpose he wanted to send his heart to crash into the goiter. In short, it will be for the skill used by Ferruccio Mengaroni that seems to make the Medusa a living thing, for the subject represented in itself, or perhaps for the incredible story of the work: the fact is that a glance is enough to feel a series of chills on the back , to have the feeling that a small insect has mistaken our backbone for its playground and is having a great time traveling it, first forward and then back. Repetition.
