Memorial to Alpini
A MAP is a whole of symbols recalling territorial concepts. The project is this as well: a map where an abstract analysis takes place of our territory and the bond established between mountains and human beings during particular circumstances.
A PLATFORM: the strength of our bonds is our base.
A map of life.
The concepts of belonging, the interweaves and the relations that define a life. Its solidity and fragility and unpredictability of how everything could end.
The VOIDS: the departure, the abandon of home to fulfill a sacrifice.
A map of abandonment.
Every void is a goodbye due to circumstances beyond our control. Voids left by lost lives. Voids that cannot be filled and that live in the memory.
The STEMS: their sacrifice changes the meaning and the perception of nature. A map of sacrifice. The voids – the alpini that left our territory – become part of the mountain which is not just a physical entity but turns out to be a union between nature and spirit. The greatness of these mounts is not due just to a mere natural factor but to the blend Nature and Human Beings instead. The voids gain their new identity blending with the place and giving it a new meaning.
