Italian and English text

A circular confrontation on identity as the value of diversity, from its historic roots to its transformations linked to processes of globalization, up to artificial intelligence where identity is reduced to pure alphanumerical codes. With the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo Da Vinci, the use of the golden ratio of 1.618 is a symbolic pretext of historical reference that has expanded over the centuries up to our own time in the mass anonymity of today, a cornerstone between human unpredictability and artificial intelligence, between the limitations of programmed perfection and the unlimited power of intuition always possessed by mankind.
From the nuclear disaster of Chernobyl to the fall of the Berlin wall, from the Balkan wars to the Intifada, the collapse of the Twin Towers and religious terrorism, the birth of the European Union and wide-scale financial speculation to the great recession and the crisis of the Euro, the torrent of migration and racial discrimination, artificial intelligence and mass standardization: from 1989 to 2019, thirty years of our history in a careful selection of paintings, structured compositions and sculptures as the tangible expressions of critical thought focussed on the social, economic and moral issues of a humanity obliged to confront changes of vast import in a relatively brief span of time.
