« In this difficult period of stop for the pandemic – that has often been compared to war – I recall my first sensory memories: the most present reminder after many years is the word “RECONSTRUCTION”. Of the drawing boards in elementary school and then in middle school, I remember a sheet of paper with the word “RECONSTRUCTION” on it, written with a red pencil, suggesting many bricks stacked to “build” its lettering. Today, in the recent context of CONSTRAINT at home, the proposal of RECOVERY is full of uncertainties … the empty restaurant tables laid with hope … the school and the children at risk of great illusions … to be supported in any case with confidence.»
– Grazia Varisco.
