Inferno by Romina de Novellis is a work dedicated to Venice, to Italy, and to the Mediterranean. Beyond it’s symbolic and aesthetic power, the performance is the manifestation of the artist’s need to confront the present in this a pivotal moment when the Mediterranean has become a theater of economic crises, wars, clashses between cultures and religions, caught in limbo between life and death. The vibrant red juice of the watermelon acts as a symbol of femininity, sensuality and maternity in classical Italian iconography, but it also refers to the blood and wounds suffered by the Mediterranean sea.
