Vittorio Corsini, Chit-Chatting, 1995, bronze, Peccioli, internal courtyard of Palazzo Pretorio

In the internal courtyard of Palazzo Pretorio is Chit-Chatting: six fig trees in terracotta pots arranged in two rows. On the sides of the courtyard, five bronze chairs are placed. The whole set seems to create a temporal suspension. The fig trees recall the Christian religious tradition, the original sin, while the enclosed dimension of the garden an hortus conclusus. The title is a tribute to everyday life, to the typical placid pace and social life in small villages. Chit-chatting can happen in many ways and can be an exchange in public or private places. This public-private ambivalence is perfectly synthesized by the installation.
