Sun, moon, air, water, fire, creatures, earth, death, in the bright text of Francis. As an invitation, a prophetic call, to wake up the moral responsabilities with the aim of keeping eyes open, wide open, on the world. The Mariana Chiesa's artwork turns on again the text of Cantico, written on the beginning of the italian poetry in 13th century, actualizing its meaning and the truth contained in it. In a countinous counterpoint between the present and the ancient text, this is an artist book, entirely hand made, it's a limited edition, printed by silkscreen in five colors.
