“VISIONS AMONGST TEMPLES IN ANCIENT SICILY”

 

Inspiration

An imaginary journey to rediscover ancient Sicily, where history and
myth come together.
The Greek temples and theatres, symbols of classic architectural
perfection, are reinterpreted as if in a dream.
As if a traveler, having visited some of the marvelous landscapes of
ancient Sicily, wanted to recreate those unique settings in his mind:
that type of beauty, magic and enchantment can only be found in
such a vision.
Only in an imaginary world can the unexpected and irrational intertwine
with spontaneity and naturalness, while creativity, freed of any bonds
with logic, becomes a synonym for folly.
Like in “Satyricon” by Fellini, the ancient temples and theatres are
transposed into surreal visions that continue to nourish the eyes and
soul of the traveler and provide images for dreams.
The unforeseen is interlaced with spontaneity, creativity
with the absurd, and dreams with reality.
