Filippo, the first curious visitor, spreads his experiences
as a great echo that overwhelms and propagates.
Filippo comes from the Marche region, which is largely affected
by the seismic swarm of 2016 and 2017.
And the earthquake will be the first theme of “Délire de Voyage”.
“Epicentro”, extrait de parfum, is the fragrance dedicated
to this phenomenon and in particular to Bolognola,
a small town of 138 inhabitants, the highest in the Marche Region,
located at the center of the Monti Sibillini National Park,
seriously affected by the earthquake.
The earthquake is a particularly disruptive and violent event,
which enters with arrogance into the lives of those involved,
taking possession of their "normality" in a few seconds.
External earthquakes increase our own inner earthquakes: it is as if,
with the loss of the safety of the earth beneath our feet,
a profound internal tremor is determined, as a consequence.
Fear and suffocation from dust is the first step, escape the second, leaving everything: objects, memories, essential goods,
desperately trying to find refuge outside.
The sight is blurred, eyes and throat irritated by the dust caused
by the collapses; we try to find in the desperation a small
and faint light, which will become the only reference point.
“Epicentro” wants to be the reaction: to become aware of what has happened, process it and react through the security
of a thought linked to Beauty.
Epicentro is a true artistic installation rich in emotions
that induces to enter actively within the artwork,
through the stimuli contained that activate all five senses.
The bottle is positioned on a base that simulates the vibrations
perceived during the earthquake and has, as a precious closure,
the faithful reproduction of a fragment of the debris of the municipality of Bolognola, collected by Filippo Sorcinelli during his first visit.
“Epicentro” therefore, does not want to be just a fragrance
but an entire project to help the population of Bolognola,
so that it can go back to being “Bononia”, or the land of good things.
