Sly Hephaestus is playing hide-and-seek with the gods, giving underwater thrills from Capo Granitola to Sciacca. In the six new forges, christened with the names Actea, Climene, Nesea, Doride, Ianeira and Ianassa, he expands his already rich array of objects, the fruits of his creativity as a blacksmith, engineer and artist.
His greatest forge will always remain in the bowels of Etna, where tireless cyclops melt metal, forge it and shape bronze sculptures.
It is the mythological representation man’s hard work, of his own anxiety to invent and innovate, to progress.
Today, the sky above Selinunte is cloudless and from the sky, technological eyes tell us of the beautiful Trinacria, with chromatic shades that reveal many things to us: not just the beauty of the island, but its state of health, its incomparable natural riches that add to the artistic ones.
It’s how our planet integrates everything, from its borders with the rest of the solar system - the exosphere - to its underwater depths, to the centre of the Earth where Hephaestus continues his mission.
