With the symbolism of the glyphs’ shapes from the 7 most used alphabets in the world, Pulcinelli links the ideas of communication and memory: a contemporary media-oriented and emotional sculptural/installation based language, a communication aimed at underlining the need to invest in the individual, so that each individual’s characteristic – ethnic, linguistic, cultural – is an opportunity not an obstacle.
Created for the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, exhibited the first time in Milan's Duomo square, during the event Plaza 2009-Oltre il limite. Observing the work from afar, it appears as a barrier, an obstacle consisting of two parallel monoliths that remind of a segment of the Berlin wall, for years a symbol of restrictions and impossibility of communication. As we get closer, what happens inside becomes more and more legible: a mass of letters of the world's seven most diffused writing systems gushes forcefully outs, as a manifestation of the dialogue, an impetuous and overwhelming force capable of uprooting the walls of forced isolation. Each limit is mirrored by an escape route, a crack through which freedom of expression can flow, to finally erupt like a raging river.
