Giuseppe Appella. Tuesday, December 12, 2006, at 19.00, in the former Church of Our Lady of Loreto Malatesta Castle, annexed to the Balestra Foundation, inaugurates the enchanted crib of Giuliano Giuliani, the crib, made of travertine in 2004, is presented in divisible compartments grouped in a large circle of three meters in diameter where the three Magi stand out, the manger, the nativity, the shepherds' tent and the star.
[...] Travertine made transparent by a long work that, through the perfection of the material, wants to free the sculpture from any figurative reminiscence, is presented in compartments divisible and grouped in a large circle of three meters in diameter, swollen or rippled from the thin air infracted on the hill of the Nativity. [...]
Therefore, surfaces and volumes, by means of singular connubi, activate at a continuous rhythm, according to the incidence of light and the presence of one or two colors, changing modulations that accentuate the effect of lightness and the focus of real elements and imaginary in an organic synthesis validated by the unity of style and the emotion of a "Birth" that Giuliani intends to transmit almost the immense space of time had been overcome in a moment. In this way, Longiano continues the tradition dear to several Italian cities (Rome, Matera, Castronuovo S. Andrea, Orvieto, Grottammare, Palermo, Macerata, Bari) that fix the Christmas appointment each year with sculpture: a specially created nativity scene , in materials and language absolutely free, such as to be able to mean how much and how it is possible to renew sacred art.
