Organi

Galleria Massimo De Carlo

Scaffolding gives the sensation to fly without wings, the impression to climb up to the sky. Also the music of organ is made for climbing to the sky, or to sink under earth. Organ and scaffolding have in common something: they extend both to the verticality.

Anche Oggi Niente

Maxxi

25 april 1936 is an installation by Massimo Bartolini composed by 250 neon lamps to create the sentence “anche oggi niente”. During the performance on the 12th of February, twelve lamps were broken on the floor from the scaffolding, creating a stars rain as an artificial San Lorenzo night: the survived lights create the final sentence.
