ABOUT ALBUM

The work created in 2019 by the Neapolitan artist Giovanni Anastasia tells an important moment in our history through the constellation of Twins, symbol of the duality that characterizes Aielli. The country, in fact, despite being a single municipality, is divided into two different residential areas in terms of shape and history. Aielli Stazione fu built after the earthquake of 1915, a date that is reported on the sides of the work separately, precisely to indicate the split, the caesura caused by the earthquake, both intimate and psychological, both social and physical, urban planning. The two inhabitants, like the two twins, look at each other as if in a sort of embrace, continuing to look for each other in the distance that separates them. Both are holding the tools that have always been used to work the land: the hoe and the hoe. The strong and large hands and the floral motifs that adorn the bodies of the two figures still recall the peasant history of our community and our double bond with the nature and with the universe.
