The project stems from a careful observation of nature and of the relationships between European states, their cultural identities and sustainable future, uniting everyone in the horizon of caring for the planet: 28 flags, one for each member state of the European Union and one, collective, which brings together and represents all the nations of united Europe, have been installed by the artist in the museum’s loggia.
The GPS coordinates referring to the seats of the individual parliaments are visible on each flag, a discreet and unambiguous way of revealing one’s place in the world through the geographical position by referring to those places where men with their own decisions determine the balance or not. The arrangement of each banner recalls that of the representatives of the individual countries when, sitting together, they can affect the fate of the planet with their choices.
