Brief Description of your work:
«…fuori scorre un mondo che vive, corre e s’agita al sentirmi così sordo al suo appello.
Dentro scorre un mondo che vive, corre e s’agita pronto a divenir tempesta, a divenir follia, a divenir realtà se con lui io corro, m’innalzo, distruggo e creo dal nulla la vita…»
P. Delia, Poetry.
«Just a moment. That glimmer of lucidity in which you realize, if only for one second, that there is much more beyond those thick walls. And so you see, you know that all this madness is nothing but a manifestation of intolerance, it is your soul that rises and emerges from the crowd, your soul in a desperate cry of freedom. But now, do not be afraid, we must not stifle the screams, because it is from this chaos that you shall raise up, giving shape to your sculpture; giving shape to your world. We are not what we have around. We are what we try to be, letting down the weapons we use to break down those walls and find answers to derisory questions that will never explain the complexity of our world, but that, however, will always be an object of curiosity – fundamental to our existence, even before our survival».
