Wolves are coming

Wolves are coming

Packs of iron wolves are invading Florence! It's "Wolves are coming", monumental installation by Liu Ruowang, set right in front of two Renaissance symbol-buildings: Pitti Palace  and Spedale degli Innocenti, starting point for a double confrontation.

The  pack of wolves (a hundred iron elements) threatening the powerless warrior is an allegory of nature's response to the devastation and predatory behaviour of man on the one hand, and  it is a criticism of the values of civilization on the other one.

The project was conceived on the occasion of the celebration of 50 years of diplomatic relations between the Italian Republic and the People's Republic of China.
