Photographer's Note

Awakening, Seward Johnson
That that seems to emerge from the subsoil, from the traffic of the Cristoforo Colombo , with silver reflexes in the green lawn of the flowerbed of the obelisk of the Eur it is Awakening, The Awakening, the suggestive install of Seward Johnson entertained in Rome on the occasion of the 20 years of the fall of the Wall in Berlin.The five visible elements, a hand, the head, an arm, a leg, a foot, in the intentions of the American sculptor they represent the awakening of the man and the consciences, the fall of the wall in Berlin that symbolizes the demolition of all the walls, a victory of the man on the constraint of the power and her logics.In the intentions of the president of Eur SpA Pierluigi Borghini and of the managing director Riccardo Mancini, that they have positioned it under to the obelisk in the rotatory one of Guglielmo Marconi Plaza, it is the symbol of a signal of Cultural Awakening in such an important area for the City of Rome, a victory of the necessity to unite rather than to divide.
