VESTITI COME UNA VESPA
The Greek sculptor Pygmalion had fallen in love with his own statue, Galatea, to the point of considering her superior to any woman and sleeping next to her. Aphrodite then decided to please him by giving her life. Similarly, Matteo Negri has tried to bring a 1970s Piaggio Vespa to life by making it in bronze and fitting it with a fairing that allows it to pirouette. The Vespa is thus a symbol of freedom, of lightness, and almost seems to dance like a ballerina flying on her own legs.
