Piano Vetrale, Town of murals.For the XXXI edition of Contemporary Art TIl Pennello D'Oro, this year we were selected to represent the theme of 'Holocaust, a very sensitive issue, as suffocating.
We have created a large crane from the Luna Park as an allegory of life.
Symbolically, the crane game, each player tries to take what attracts him most, who wantmore. Often it is the most precious object. We then filled our crane with a pile of shoes(those deported to concentration camps, before being tragically killed in the ovens, werestripped naked. Everyone's shoes were "recycled"), how to remember all those who have been forcibly exploited and have suffered the most violent events.
Our cranes those shoes takes a heart, a symbol of love, life and our only salvation.
We called our cranes "Arbeit macht sklaven - Liebe macht frei" (work makes slaves - thelove frees) to counter the message Nazi "Work makes you free" that the gates of Auschwitz led.
We dedicate this to all of our work every day who have struggled and are struggling to live happily with respect and love.
This our heart, remains in Piano Vetrale also as a gesture of gratitude to the abitants of the country, that with an great affection,  gave us some wonderful moments.
