‘Eternity II consists of a diptych, made of bronze placed opposite each other and covered by a matt white patina that makes them resemble two crumpled pages. This creations derive their forms from the rough surfaces of hypogeic cavities that were once the catacombs of the Eternal City, Rome. The conquest of air, light and green by these cavities transformed into works of art is due to the qualifying action of the artist who, with tenacity, has realised her aesthetic and poetic dream. Eternity I and Eternity II, which as sculpture have an objective physical extension, develop the premises of a plasticity intuited as the ‘continuity’ of matter in space (Boccioni) and achieve the goal of emancipation from objectuality (Martini). At the same time, in the context of contemporary sculpture, they enact the miracle of encompassing the zero time of Eternity.’
