"THE THIRD PARADISE" OF POMPEII
Until July, The Large Gymnasium of Pompeii will host the work of Maurizio Pistoletto "The Third Paradise", representing the rebirth that the city of Pompeii is experiencing. The "Third Paradise" depicts a revised symbol of the infinite, consisting not of two, but of three circles intersecting each other. The first circle represents the past while the one on the opposite side represents the future. The central circle, on the other hand, represents the new humanity, which is the result of the balance between the past and the future. The third paradise in Pompeii appears constituted in this way: the first circle is made of lapilli, tufa and ceramic waste (the past); the second circle is made of wi-fi antennas and a computer (the future). The central circle is made of those herbs and flowers whose seeds have been found in the ash, witnessing a rebirth that can happen only thanks to the influence of the past.
