This interview is in Italian; it was recorded in Carrara and it rounds around Per ogni lavoratore morto, Giorgio Andreotta Calò’s sculptural piece at the XIV International Sculpture Biennial, a gigantic chip of marble that had been extracted and transported from the quarry to Carrara – to an abandoned church - as it was once used, by the only human force. A piece of marble that becomes almost a monument to the marble culture.
Giorgio Andreotta Calò, Per ogni lavoratore morto, 2010, marmo di Carrara, installation view. Postmonument, XIV Biennale Internazionale di Scultura di Carrara, Carrara.
