Ships that pass in the night is the new site-specific installation that artist Maurizio Nannucci conceived on the occasion of the fourth edition of Hypermaremma for the façade of the Rocca Aldobrandesca in Talamone. The work will establish an intense dialogue with the history of the place. Located high above the Maremma coastline, the ancient medieval fortress – dating back to the 12th century – hosts the work conceived as a meeting point between antithetical dualities: reality and vision, time and space, water and land. These are the very dichotomies upon which the activity of nature and human beings has been based on in the area defined by the bay of Talamone – halfway between sea and sky, between coastal landscape and hills.
