The show

Art is not Nature, but it can convey important messages for the Planet. Following this philosophy, Marco Nereo Rotelli takes a pure material, such as stone, Carrara marble and elaborates 4 large marble books, where he engraves poetic verses that are an incipit to love Nature and the world. Carved on stone, words acquire another intensity, thought becomes action. The first verses are a tribute to Grazia Deledda, Nobel Prize for literature. “We are reeds and the wind is our becoming”. “We are subject to the wind, to lower ourselves to the earth, but we also have the strength to get up”. The wind then determines what can happen. It is a reflection on destiny, but also on how Nature can change destiny, and on what humanity is experiencing at this moment. This is the message of the installation which arrives, for the second stage, in Milan in the spaces of the Luciana Matalon Foundation, open to the public from November 5th to November 30th, after being presented at the Porto Rotondo Yacht Club and exhibited along the promenade and along the pier throughout the summer in the historic art village.

His words resound like the waves of the sea and transmit the energy of becoming, the force of Nature.
