Located in the spaces of Città della Scienza, the outdoor installation is freely usable and consists of three human-height sculptures mounted on a circular mirrored base with a diameter of 2.5 metres. The three human figures are arranged in a circle, as if reviving an ancient group dance: arms outstretched, hands outstretched in a gesture of union and solidarity, touching each other. Below, on the ground, a large circle reflects the sky above, space and the “dancing” figures themselves, which are enlarged and changed. The invitation to interact with the work: the “Union Circle” is not closed, but leaves an opening open, a space still empty, designed to receive passers-by who wish to join the embrace of art. The work therefore presents itself as a device ready to be run through the active participation of the users, through the physical presence of their bodies, which, from time to time, will play a role to complete and modify the installation, interacting with the sculptures and reflecting themselves, together, in the great mirror of tomorrow.

They attended the opening ceremony Massimo Pica SciamaraVice President of the Italian Foundation for Bioengineering, Michael RussoDirector of the Department of Architecture at the Federico II University of Naples, as well as the author of the work, Christian Liberinol Fabio Rinaldi la regia and others Luigi AmodeoDirector of the Città della Scienza Science Centre.
