17° Simposio Internazionale di Scultura su pietre del Friuli Venezia Giulia

Pietra Aurisina

Itinerari nel Rojale


Aelita, the protagonist of a Russian science fiction novel, is the daughter of the stars, an inhabitant of other worlds, an ideal woman, an alien, a perfect metaphor for the cosmos and universal energy. However, in the contrast between figurative and abstract elements, a second allegorical meaning is hidden, requiring a deeper interpretation of what underlies the image. The female figure becomes a representation of the very dynamics of thought, evolving and changing in interaction with others.
