"Vertical" is a plane perpendicular to a horizontal plane. In short, it starts from the ground to go up, attracted downwards by the force of gravity. Which is the one that ruins everything. So you have to have minimally solid foundations, otherwise a collapse occurs. This is what happens more or less often to my precariously stable works. From here the study of counterweights, which sometimes fail the test.

Gilberto Scuderi was born in Mantua, a city from which he never moved except for the holidays, usually spent in Italy. However, he visited some of the main European capitals (Berlin the favorite), even though he missed Paris. He eschews a trip to New York, already prepaid. He knows Rome well (relatives and friends have hosted him since he was a boy), he remembers his paternal Sicily in Etna with childish affection and yearns for Naples in the memory of the transition from adolescence to what came after.

Continuing to play with forms and words, without pretending to govern them, is the main way of a research that is always regenerated anew, in spite of time. Donata Negrini
