Allegoria del Buon Governo
Installation made of polystyrene covered with concrete.
The Allegory of the Good Government is the title of the work, inspired by the fresco by Ambrogio Lorenzetti painted around 1340 in the hall of the Palazzo Pubblico in Siena, in which the frescoes represent the allegories of the Good Government and the Bad Government, both populated by characters allegorical.
The installation represents a cubic meter of concrete which, placed on the ground, presses on vegetables, flowers and plants, which are oppressed by the heaviness of the material.
Despite this, nature tries to regain possession of its spaces by struggling to emerge from the ground.
The work stages what has happened in recent decades throughout the Italian territory, in which green spaces have given way to profit, a process slowed only in part by the economic crisis.
