Vernisssage „Protection by forest“
Close to the shoreline in South of Toscana, called Alta Maremma, Enzo Arduini has a holiday home. One day, he took a long walk in the forest and suddenly found a settlement.
Actually a German family made themselves a new retired home. Until then Enzo felt „the forest“ as a scarying thing full of secrets and a place where you should always be careful.
By learning to know the German family and having a lot of chats with them, he started to become curious.
Taking some sheets and pens he decided to go into the forest and felt like becoming a part of it. Suddenly he felt familiar with the woods, even started to feel protected by its silecne and security. 10 years passed since that day- a time of new creations, new paintings and sculptures- dedicated to the forest.
„Would there be no forest, humans would die soon“.
