closed Valerio Berruti. Nina's carousel

Curated by: Monia Trombetta

The show

"La giostra di Nina" is the title of the film project by Valerio Berruti composed of about 3000 drawings made by hand and joined in sequence to become frames of a video, hosted in the video gallery of the Museum.

The protagonists are Nina, a small carousel forced to work by the surly grandfather and Geppo, a big boy with a childish soul who creates confusion among the customers of the village carousel. The Giostra di Nina, instead of the classic horses, is made up of birds, a symbol of everyday life and freedom, flanked by protagonists destined to take flight.

The monumental sculpture of the short - with a diameter of 7 meters - is exhibited to the public in the hall of the Museum, allowing everyone to admire it, listen to the soundtrack composed by Ludovico Einaudi and get on the carousel, completing the work with active participation. Because, as Berruti explains in the documentary about the backstage: «I wanted to create a sculpture that would host the children, not just one that represented them. Children are part of this work, as in a collective performance ».
