The series "Mondi Ammaccati" (bruised worlds), perfect formal conjugation of the ecological concept "the Earth is offended", transposed also on the plane and with texts written in the World's Words variant.

Since 2011 I have been exploring this idea of my “Mondi Ammaccati” (‘Dented Worlds’). I have always been unsettled and frightened by how humanity has been, with little consciousness, damaging our planet and, consequently, itself. Although this fear brings a negative aspect into my work, I also strive to show a way out through culture. This is why each of my dented worlds carry a significant scar together with writings from great artists and minds, such as Saint-Exupéry, Bulgakov, Bach, Montale and others, whom have immensely contributed to the evolving of humanity.The “Mondi Ammaccati” are wooden or stainless steel sculptures with paint or silver or gold thin foils. The text is handwritten with a special pen. Their shape varies from spheres, to disks, to panels. The world is ours to love, more than a right, it is a duty. Christian Costa
