Platyhelminthes

The various stones (onyx, marble, travertine), chosen essentially for their building characteristics, are subjected to a process of annihilation and degradation, with the intention of destroying their lasting and reassuring power.

The works become metaphors of the inexorable, undisciplined passage of time.

I try, through chemical and physical principles, to reach the core of the material, to admire the stone that erodes, the acceleration of the process of destruction of things, even if imperceptibly.
