How long will you stay hidden behind a clay statue?” Perfect calcs showing the victims in the position in which they died. Since 79 A.D., so for eternity. Taking a cue from the cast of “Gli amanti”…

GLI AMANTI, an eighteen-minute pièce yet already reported by critics as “the dream of an absolute love between two people.” (Exibart Oct/2021). It is inspired by the famous Pompeian calcs buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD and found exactly one hundred years ago, in 1922. Starting from that hug made eternal by death, as an archaeological project, the work tries to dig even deeper, to bring to light the story that the two lovers lived before remaining forever in each other’s arms. For years, archaeologists have wondered if the bodies were of a man and a woman, two young men, or a mother and child. The artist’s reading of this uncertainty therefore revolves around the themes of unconditional love and focuses on gender as an issue that questions today’s society through that of yesterday. The show has been staged in several cultural events both nationally and internationally and has been selected for Aerowaves 21 and the Young Author Dance Showcase 2021.
