Fall. The legend of Nera and Velino
It all started looking at a fountain in need of affection: a small iron column-shaped fountain, dating back to the early 1900s, with its historical value and location, located in the center of Marmore. It needed care and enhancement for a worthy urban decor.
The redevelopment took place through an intervention of Urban Art, through the creation of a mural. The project involved the call of the estabilished artist Ester Grossi, who was invited to participate in a 7-day residency to get to know the territory and its history.
The legend of Nera and Velino, linked to the birth of the Marmore Falls, is the story of a love, a fall and a consequent change.
Like the two main characters of the legend, Nera and Velino who, through the fall, the tragedy of a love, both become water and eternally lost their materiality, so the sideway image becomes an abstraction in the frontal representation, in which the colors hot and cold, playing together, are transformed into the sensual and constant movement of the water.
