How much longer will you stay hidden behind a clay statue?
Perfect casts that show the victims where they died.
From 79 A.D., so for the eternity.
Taking inspiration from the cast of “The lovers” (Gli amanti) discovered in Pompei, the creation by Adriano Bolognino wants to bring to light a love suddenly interrupted by the overbearing force of nature, but kept forever.
Eternal it’s the hug in which the two lovers are found and at the same time locked up.
The cast has remained hidden from the public for years waiting to resolve any doubts about the identity of the two.
It was assumed they were a man and a woman, a mother and a son, two young men.
What is certain it’s that love has kept them together for over 2000 years, overcoming death. Let leave to the imagination of the audience the dream of a absolute love.
Whoever they were. Visit them.
