Room Trinacria:

A massive door rotates on a hinge with the weight of a rock, the threshold of a secret cavern opens up, leaving a small space for the passage in the chamber. This opens on a space dominated by the shadows, just whipped by shafts of light hitting the edges and  wedged as cracks in the night.

The room is dominated by triangular shapes, they are clean volumes with large, rough surfaces  modulated according to pure geometric forms, in line with the plastic research conducted by the artist: from the gateway, a heavy stone prism, to the large bed, a white, thin mattress that crosses the space from wall to wall.

The inspiration comes from the triangular shape of Sicily and the colors red and black, the colors of fire and lava of the volcano, which dominate the landscape. An impressive red triangular sculpture, at the center of the room, stands perpendicular to the white triangle of the bed top. The large triangular splits mark with their volumes all the space, which, with its suggestive darkness, offers itself as a uterine riverbed, absolute place of meditation.
A night  in which to be pierced by the red wedge of passion.
