Work carried out on the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy, the Tasso High School in Rome, 2011.
In addition to the realization of the work, the artist’s intervention in the high school is at the origin of the new website of Tasso. In addition, in collaboration with Barbara Goretti, Alfredo Pirri curated a long term project , entitled The Mirror of Memory, involving the students in a double-track route: a workshop – focused on different aspects of the theme of memory, both with respect to the languages of contemporary art as in Pirri’s artistic research – and a laboratory, a work in which the participants were asked to compare themselves with the conception, by each of them in a metaphorical and evocative object, able to condense the vision of the students on memory and its multiple meanings.
