Thursday, March 21st _ 7pm Cristina Ferraiuolo: Stone Butterfly (Journal, 2018) talk and booksigning A long term project, an emotional, sentimental journey searching the roots of my identity, discovering the female universe around me, in which I have learned to recognize myself and that is one thing with the city. – Cristina Ferraiuolo The butterfly symbolizes femininity and lightness. It reminds of the movement of teenage girls in Neaples, strolling around town on their scooters. They carry the beauty of vital force, in a stage of life that is over in a flapping of wings. The butterfly is beauty, fragility, transformation. The stone is the weight of a destiny often written, but also a symbol of resistance and determination. It is the basalt, the volcanic stone that roads are made of, on which these young women drive their vehicles; it is the porous tufa of Neaples: a city that vibrates while, at the same time, is suspended in time, almost motionless. In Naples, streets are a place to play, grow, live, show off, seduce. Here stone and butterfly are not in juxtaposition; everything coexists, everything passes from one side to the other, from one extreme to another, without obstacles, in a fluid way. The lightness of the butterfly coexists with the heaviness of the stone and there is beauty in both.     Cristina Ferraiuolo will be at Micamera on Thursday, March 21st at 7 pm to present the book published by Journal in 2018.
