Marilyn incontra Visconti
The effect created is deliberately aged, like a period picture ruined by the passing time, but that did not affect her smile again - and always - recognizable, distinctive and dazzling.
The red glass on the left corner is another story: I was fortunate to be able to collect the broken glass now, making up a tower in Liberty style villa in the famous film director Luchino Visconti "dovecote" in Ischia, fragments are collected in earth, a work of art reduced to smithereens by time and neglect.
The glasses are for me a precious heirloom which I'm doing other work for the past two years.
In my fantasy I imagined a spiritual encounter between the actress and director who in this life I do not think has ever happened.
If nothing happens by chance, will make sense to have a relic of the Visconti and have the opportunity to participate in an exhibition of Marilyn?
In this moment of my life I find myself working on both my imagination and I wanted them together, who knows maybe the two of them have already met in another world in another reality ...
I have various colors of glass, I chose the red because the color is more valuable and that of her lipstick, her immortal smile.
