In the Park with “OnDante”

Park, lakeside and Gazebo a Lago

This reflective garden is inspired by Dante Alighieri and Fabrizio De André.

“From centre unto rim, from rim to centre
in a round vase the water moves itself,
(…) Into my mind upon a sudden dropped”

(Divine Comedy, Paradise, Canto XIV)

A stone thrown into the water creates concentric circles that expand and then return to the centre.
The journey is travelling to seek, discover and find oneself, returning to the centre with new dimensions of the self.

The installation is a magic circle, a mandala, a kaleidoscope.
Where glass beads recall dimensionless evocations.
