Nessuno mi pettina beno come il vento (Nothing combs my hair like a wind) Alda Merini
With no human hand to intervene and arrange matter in time and space, wind and light perform a constant cycle of crescendo and decrescendo.
Since the 19th century, the point of view of city dwellers has shaped perception of the “countryside”. In countless paint-ings, bourgeois society appropriated the landscape as a roman-tic recreation area, transforming it into a world of longing and escape, an image tourism has gratefully embraced since the end of the 19th century. Anyone who speaks of land and land-scape today can fall back on a flood of instant images that usu-ally have little to do with the reality of the people living here.
