The Garden of Earthly Delights
is a deep choreographic ritual
performed in ancient cloisters, which celebrates the Earthly Paradise, a garden located on the top of the Mount of Purgatory.
Dante Alighieri describes this wonderful place as a luxuriant garden created by God for all humankind.
The Earthly Paradise is recalled in the square architecture of the cloister created by men to represent the world.
The Garden and the cloister blend together in a centuries-old consciousness which follows the physical and
spiritual growth of men since ancient times.
The movement of six bodies, inspired by the complexity of Hieronymus Bosch’s painting, teems inhabiting
the garden, a fenced area which protects the most precious goods.
A weave of gestures flows into the bodies pulled together by a constant desire for movement and linked by
their voyage to purification and rise. They are enlightened by the natural predisposition of their soul to passion,
which generates a magnetic connection with the heaven in order to create a bright and organic totality.
The symmetry, which is a fundamental concept in geometry widely spread in nature and in human thoughts
for the world comprehension, here becomes the keystone which offers an order to the movement of the bodies.
