For Those Who Fly
2011 - outdoor bench and writing

Set up partially for the first time at the Biennale Internazionale della Scultura di Carrara in 2010, the work For Those Who Fly was created the following year at the Fattoria di Celle in memory of Pina Gori. The bench, placed on the edge of the Fattoria's roof, is close to the family residence as well as to the terrace from which Pina loved to admire the view at sunset. This work bears witness to the esteem and affection that the artists always had for Pina, and at the same time, it evokes her spirit as if she were present in the space.
