Memories by Giovanna Cerise 
An istallation inspired by the poem:

Do not chop away, shears, that face

Do not chop away, shears, that face,
alone in the mind that is dispersing,
do not turn her big, listening face
into my fog of always.

A chill comes down... The hard blow snaps
and the wounded acacia shakes off 
the cicada's husk
in the first slime of November.
By Eugenio Montale, from the collection "Le Occasioni", 1939.
Version in English translated by LiteraryJoint.

Italian version
Non recidere, forbice, quel volto

Non recidere, forbice, quel volto,
solo nella memoria che si sfolla,
non far del grande suo viso in ascolto
la mia nebbia di sempre.

Un freddo cala... Duro il colpo svetta.
E l'acacia ferita da sé scrolla
il guscio di cicala
nella prima belletta di Novembre.

Opening at 11am slt - 3pmslt
