Yesterday I attended the opening of Giuseppe Zago’s Vita della Ruggine exhibition in Montefegatesi. That roughly translates to Life of Rust.
Giuseppe takes rusty bits of farm equipment and old tools and creates whimsical art pieces. Old shovels become faces, long metal rods become birds legs, metal plates become fish, picks become cats, chains become necks for giraffes…new, fun life from thrown away objects.
Here is the artist.
Giuseppe loves making these wonderful pieces and is unsure about selling them. I think we need to convince him. I have my eye on several items for my garden.
Someone has created a piece of rock art in the river bed at Ponte a Serraglio.
I wonder how long it will last…not very long if this rain keeps up and the river rises again.
…I didn’t have long to wait to find out. I wrote this post last night and this morning I woke up to see the river had risen. I looked out of my window and saw that the rocks were still standing, but by the time I grabbed my camera and ran outside it had been washed away. I’m glad I took photos.
