I fiori del male - Daniel Gigliotti

RADICI

photographer: Antonio Pittelli

 

"Radici" (roots) represent the link between the human being and the environmental that surrounds him

An indissoluble bond, an umbilical cord never completely cut off.

 

As far as we can look beyond the horizon or tend our gaze to the sky, the roots are there to remind us where we come from and, perhaps, who we really are, what is our deepest nature. It is the myth of Icarus, read in reverse: the wings do not burn because they are too close to the sun, but they remain anchored to the earth, a reassuring and salvific element. "
