Space “Come il cervo anela all’acqua” (As the deer longs for water)

The concept

The protagonist of the project is the deer, a lowland and marshy animal that lives in woods and forests preferably located along watercourses. Symbol of rebirth due to its horns that fall in winter to reform in spring, next to water it becomes an emblem of the divine, a metaphor for the believer who longs for God, like a deer for spring water

What is a garden for you?

From the flower-pot saucer with the mosquito larvae to the ocean, everything is to be observed
