Perhaps the Present and the Past are both present in the Future are the lines by the poet Thomas Stearns Eliot which, since November 2019, have been illuminating La Pilotta, a museum complex, along the four sides of St. Peter’s courtyard.
The permanent 190 metres long blue installation, neon thread made, is one of Maurizio Nannucci‘s works, a florentine artist, who is one of the greatest interpreters of contemporary art.
Perhaps the Present and the Past are both present in the Future is a consideration enhancing the link among the historic building, the present we are living and what is coming.
The installation was unveiled with an electronic music performance by Lillevan, a composer and video-artist from Berlin.
