Arnaldo POMODORO @ Vatican!! (and also @ MILANO!)
It´s known that the Vatican is one of the first designs schools, and if you are not agree, check the other post about, for example, the Costumes of the army designed by Michelangelo!!!
But anyway, when I was there I found very abnormal to find this Arnaldo Pomodoro sculpture in the middle of the Vatican interior park. Anyway, it´s amazing!!!
“Sphere Within a Sphere” sculpted by Arnaldo Pomodoro located outside the Vatican Museum. Is this sculpture another occult reference to the Benben or Great pyramid.
We move out into the courtyard and I spot the Golden Globe. This is a beautiful sculpture. It is interesting. The center globe remains stationary while the outer globe rotates around it. It is supposed to symbolize how the church remains the immovable center of the world. Sadly for us, the outer globe is not moving today. Still, it is quite a sight.
Here i was walking through the Vatican Museum and i found this window, that gave me this amazing Pomodoro´s view….
ALSO, one of the most famous sculptures of Pomodoro is in Milan, as he since 1954 has lived in Milan and has his studio alongside the docks in Porta Ticinese
here I post some pictures of the DISCO:
Piazza Meda,Arnaldo Pomodoro’s Sun.The large rotating disk designed by Pomodoro in 1980 shines brightly when the sun strikes it.It is one of the more meaningful and spectacular modern sculptures to be found in the city squares and is a good example of Italian art from the period influenced by the Informal style.It is framed by a highly uniform piazza from the architectural point of view.These buildings were all built between the two world wars,and include many possible interpretations of the contemporary style known as Novecentismo,characterised by the modernization of classical elements and forms.
