The monumental forms in polished steel by Helidon Xhixha, which shape light and its reflections, come to terms with space and time, summer and fall seasons, glowing with the hues of the surrounding landscape in an area listed as heritage by UNESCO since 2004.

The exhibition distributed in the territory celebrates the 50th anniversary of Forme nel verde, the longest international sculpture exhibition founded in 1971 thanks to the intuition of Mario Guidotti, an renowned art collection with in-depth knowledge of modern and contemporary art, honored this year by the assignment of the Medal of Honor of the President of the Italian Republic.
