Author: Inside Voices with Alessandra Falcone
The iconic miter emblem of the Saint, restored in simple forms, pierced in the center with the negative of the blessing hand which refers yes to the gesture of blessing, but also to the gestures that have always been associated with the Neapolitan people. The identity of the saint and his people therefore merge and interpenetrate, going beyond the sacred sphere to become each other's essence.
Available in various formats, in various materials and different sizes and color variants, the work is by Alessandra Falcone, second prize of the first edition. of the scholarship “San Gennaro. A Saint. A people. His new face” in collaboration with the School of Sculpture of the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples.
