“Luna-Park” in the Central Pavilion 2017

” Luna – Park” in the drawing of Vittorio Peretto

Tutta la sfera varcano del fuoco,
ed indi vanno al regno de la luna.
Veggon per la più parte esser quel loco
come un acciar che non ha macchia alcuna;
e lo trovano uguale, o minor poco
di ciò ch’in questo globo si raguna,
in questo ultimo globo de la terra,
mettendo il mar che la circonda e serra.
(…)
Ludovico Ariosto
“Astolfo sulla Luna”
(Orlando furioso, XXXIV)

The reflective irony of the installation “Luna-Park” by Vittorio Peretto, circular as the Moon, circular as the Central Pavilion.

In the centre, a “crater” is opened up and a Sputnik, pioneer of the spatial adventure, stands up it, rounded by pyramidal oaks reaching towards the sky: leaving red-hot rockets blowing steam and flames, among red fire plants and volcanic lapilli.

Everywhere, the lunar surface is there, as a pumice sea, where, among the small and big gardens, Neil Armstrong footprints appear.
Here and there, you can fine glass ampoules of “Astolfo sulla Luna”, the adventurous journey wrote by italian poet Ludovico Ariosto, on the Moon, where the Carlo Magno Paladin, searching for friend’s Orlando mind, finds everything man have lost: from dreams to wisdom, till the intellect.

And then the infinitive Moon phases succession are visible in the eight big moon realised through black and white plants.

Suspended along uncertain and crazy trajectories, intergalactic carriers travel in imaginary journey to plummet on the lunar soil spotted by “meteorites” radiating sounds, recorded by Nasa, from the Moon, from the Earth and from others planets in the solar system and lunar song, created for the occasion

A real Luna Park! During Orticolario, daily and night events will take place here. Soon further details.
