Indeed “We are all saints” (Siamo tutti santi), a site-specific piece fashioned at the MAON in Rende (Cosenza), is a project with acrylic glass, which in this case, however, it is set over a sheaf of grooves in the wall, and spreads downwards and out, like a fan, from a single point at the top — it sort of represents light. Put in other words: symbolic light and real light meet on a halo illuminated from within, which hints with irony to a profane holiness.
