Special Project

UBUNTU (Let your tower bloom)
A few months ago I started designing and creating works using living elements of nature. My idea would be to be able to make my works live even in outdoor spaces. To date, the project is still in its infancy and is titled Ubuntu (Let your tower bloom).
In sub-Saharan African culture, Ubuntu represents a fundamental philosophical principle: the essence of what it means to human. Ubuntu indicates benevolence towards others, is a rule of life-based on compassion and respect for others. "I am what I am by virtue of what we are all about 
"Ubuntu urges support and mutual help to gain awareness of their rights and duties. It is an ideal drive towards the whole of humanity, a desire for peace. It is the acceptance of others, of the differences that characterize and become an opportunity for exchange and mutual enrichment. We live in our defensive towers without doors and windows. We would like to have the opportunity to grow, flourish and observe ourselves.
