The temple of the wind, a work by Casciello on the Terrace of Centro Polivalente
Angelo Casciello, The temple of the wind, a work dating to 1998 installed in Peccioli in 2009, Peccioli, Terrace of the Multipurpose Center.
Angelo Casciello places himself in an exchange with the environment and gives space to the value of the place. In his vision, the place is a conception of sculpture becoming a matter of the space-ambience.
The temple of the wind expresses the bond with nature, in which the countryside, the earth and the peasant world with its rituals and myths become a stimulus and validation for a journey through art. The artist plays on the relationship between solid and void volumes; he plays with subtle and solid ramifications, like in a totem, entering into the surrounding landscape and becoming an element of continuity, striving to mend the relationship between countryside and city. Casciello rethinks the spaces in which people live so that the sculptural work takes into account the sounds of the cities, the colors of the trees, the rustle of the wind.
The temple of the wind by Angelo Casciello, installed initially at Fonte Mazzola Amphitheater in Peccioli, is now located on the terrace of the Multi-purpose Center in Peccioli.
