Deserted City (2014 – 2017)

All of a sudden, a huge, towering and straightedged shadow arose half a mile away from us.”

The Deserted City is a series of sculptoric constructions, in tribute to “GOG”, the book by Giovanni Papini, 1881-1956.

Architectural and enigmatic. Dramatic. Dark. Raw. Balance. Brutalist. Timeless.
