The show opens with one of Pistoletto's most emblematic works: "Grande sfera di giornali - Progetto per un museo" (Large sphere of newspapers - Project for a museum). The first sphere was created by the artist in 1966 and was rolled through the streets of Turin in December 1967, a performance known as "Scultura da passeggio" (Walking sculpture). The newspapers that Pistoletto used to make that first sphere carried reports of the troubles rocking Italy at the end of the Sixties. At the time Pistoletto made a model, which was then built for the first time at the 1976 Venice Biennale. On the occasion of the show in San Gimignano, Pistoletto creates a new sphere, more than three metres in diameter, covered with papers from all over the world and bearing witness to the current events of our time. Hanging on the walls in the same room are a series of LED writings by Pascale Marthine Tayou, sketching out the concept of the global village as the stage upon which the daily confluence of our lives takes place. In Tayou's work, his interest in materials and their significance predominates. For this exhibition he uses rusted nails with different coloured heads as his contribution to a dialogue with Pistoletto's "Rotazione dei corpi" (Rotation of bodies). The work comprises two transparent sheets upon which a portion of the universe is reproduced. By moving these two elements, the point around which all the stars of the universe rotate can be continually changed.
