Mario Brunello's cello and Mariangela Gualtieri's poetry in  a threesome dialogue with a droplet that, from the beginning to the end of the concert, marks the melting of a block of ice suspended three meters from the ground, center stage.


The installation, entitled "Quasi-Zero," was created for a special meeting between music and poetry: “Acqua Rotta” born at Arte Sella (Trento) in collaboration with the Botanical Garden of Padua.


A crystal of frozen water, suspended mid-air between two long, thin rods. In the dialogue between poetry and music, "Quasi-zero" is an Ice Guest.

An immobile presence, if it weren't for the quiet pulsation that, instead of life, measures, drop by drop the distance that separates it from nothingness
