Favilluzza installation transforms the traditional elements of the ancient San Gerardo’s celebration, to rethink the N.A.V.E. space. Given the irregular morphology and topography, Favilluzza aims to simplify and strengthen the N.A.V.E. by leaning vertical “Fanoi” (= traditional celebrative posts) against the existing walls. The new space is compressed and recalls the “cuntane” (= typical alleyways of historical city center).
The Fanoi are Favilluzza’s matter: metal sticks to form enclosing surfaces and create open-air rooms.
During the inauguration night, some torches were positioned on the top of the posts, to illuminate the N.A.V.E., remembering the old celebration. A new line of fire divides now the sky from the earth, lightning up the whole neighborhood.
The neighborhood community has actively helped during the construction.
