Monsters


Born from an ancient Greek tradition, the “mask” has always had the function to exorcise the buildings, until it becomes a decorative element. Heads of monsters and Gorgons exposed to symbolize the intervention of an hero who had cut them off and show them. Suffering faces, animal-like monsters that look at us from above as we walk along the road. An ancient gallery of monsters hiding cleverly between the details of Rome palaces. Monsters is the search for these elaborated architectural elements, that reveal an esoteric and superstitious face.
