Les Plis de la Vie

Les Plis de la Vie

The edge, physical expression of discontinuity, is the universal symbol of change, which through the repetition of small and big crises transforms the end into a new beginning. Unique concrete tool that nature has allowed us to evolve. But we need great awareness to overcome the limits. A scream against the sky releases our life energy. Everything changed. The crisis has passed. At that moment we have grown and with us the whole of humanity. Reflections in the mirror we discover that we are humanity! The future is in the hands of each of us.

A noble and powerful figure effortlessly gliding in the air, owning the sky, high above reality… This is the Hawk of Achill, inspired by an ancient Celtic myth, a guide leading to love for man and nature, a symbol of enlightenment, creativity, truth and experience connecting us to the spiritual world…

I see it as the embodiment of the power to glance at things from afar, from above, while still being able to pore on details closely and swooping in on meaningful matter when required. It represents freedom from any conditioning in the ability to assess, the courage to enact principles and beliefs,   always doing what is right for us in any condition, even in the most difficult and complex situations, in order to solve any problems fast and accurately with no shortsighted doubts and uncertainties, managing our own value and life in absolute freedom and in harmony with the world.

This work of art, entirely made out of steel, is an interpretation of the logo of the Alpine Ski World Cup Alta Badia, and stands as an eternal symbol of our land, famous all over the world. It is a witness to a dream which has come true, a dream which tends toward the future. Located at the start of the Gran Risa, a truly perfect slope for all skiing enthusiasts, it showcases the magic of Piz La Ila. Here you can feel like the champions who battle down this slope year after year. It‘s where the dream began back in 1985.

A perfect snapshot of the beauty of Alta Badia and the skiing competition that made it famous. Brought that a site to life through light enhances the Dolomites environment, world heritage site of UNESCO and of mankind. The sculpture is mimetic and elusive, immense and bright.

A celebration of courage, determination and talent which combined with passion gives meaning to life. An eternal reminder that people are always at the heart of any success.

This work represents an occasion to ponder upon and investigate transcendency through the language of Art, Design and new metalwork techniques. It is a thought of change and revolution. The idea and symbol of Christ as a milestone overlaps the concept and metaphor of Time. In a moment of crisis, when we are thrown into the fray and deprived of benchmark figures, we can start by signs and symbols to rebuild a new tomorrow. It represents a starting point for an outward journey to reach a new frontier land through the values of the respect for life, brotherhood and equality. It is a message of hope, an invitation to faith in a larger sense, not necessarily to believe in the establishment, but certainly in mankind and life.
