Enej Gala speaks about emergent social problems through sculptures and installation with hung on bodies. The installation by Caterina Morgi dwell upon fragility hidden behind an appearance of eternity, such as for the architectures of Venice. Valentina Furian dedicates to the natural world her ambient sound installation to blur the line between reality and fiction. Francesco Nordio developed an year-long project and here he exhibits the documentation of his cultural actions realized involving people in his artistic experiences.
