The Project devotes itself to a theme which concerns the entire population of the planet. Metropoli//Antimetropoli talks in eight different voices of good and evil, hopes and set-backs, dreams and disappointments, history and legends, of reality and of fantasy within our troubled world. Occupying a Venetian space linked closely for some years now with the history of the Biennali, on the occasion of the 12th International Architecture Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia, it attempts to illustrate how cities and the spaces in which we live might exist, reflecting whether we have become part of a global village - held captive forever, clinging on to the chosen certainties of our precious past; selected plants or animals aboard a hypothetical ark heading for whatever the future might hold; considering where our children might grow up and which languages will we still want to speak and hear. Because art set down in all its shapes and forms is here to prompt and cry out, to remind and create, to startle and amuse. Metropoli//Antimetropoli is an exhibition designed for anyone who asks themselves what we are and what awaits us. Rolf Bienentreu presents his short film Piazza dello Amor Perfetto, reflecting on the fate of an old square in Genova  which as the legend would have it, is a depository of perfect love. The imposing plexiglass bed created by Rossana Gallo, in which strands of cream mohair run amok, expresses passion, conception, life and the demise of the human race. Paola Giordano with her installations in acrylic and industrial waste materials points her finger at the phenomenon of social disintegration. Margherita Leoni depicts in her drawings the wild Brazilian forests, her conception of man rediscovering himself within the realms of this ‘architectural vegetation’. Whereas Monica Marioni would have us reflect on the idea of city life in which man’s duplicity reveals itself. Existing within a society the human race as a whole must stifle the body and bring the head more into play to avoid the inevitability of being overwhelmed, a choice of things  natural would be sufficient to maintain a strong and healthy body. Nature would have provided the remainder. The portrayal of the people who live within the Brazilian forests, the indios and the mettici Caboclos, represented going about their daily life occupied in their life-long customs is at the very nerve-centre of Mello Witkowsky Pinto’s work. Samuele Raccagni designs houses that are in harmony with the environment, re-investigating the functionality of spaces , and what it is that we choose to make our homes in, pursuing the idea of architecture freed from, particular style, rules, regulation and speculation. Marialuisa Tadei gives us glimpses of her works which revolve around the theme of the Divine within which our entire existence is interwoven, even when with a choice between spirit and material matters it’s the latter which is favoured, completely forgetting the primigenial substance which makes man the only being capable of reason and of looking on high.
