How to get there

In the direction of Parma, Via Costituzione is the fourth right side street of Via Emilia all'Angelo, along the Crostolo river (before the bridge), ends up in Via XX Settembre. The work is located in an outdoor public park.


The work is a clear homage to dance, which finds space for expression in this carefully restored building. Three large corten steel sheets are positioned in the green area next to the building, based on a precise astronomical configuration, almost as if to suggest a reflection of the astral vault. The pantographic engravings of cosmological symbols across the sheets reflect the artist’s intention of representing three large pages of an astronomy book.
