The Alphabet of the Stars. Ottavia Casagrande her piece of sky

The sky has always been a source of inspiration for poets, scientists and lovers, interpreters of a reality that belongs to the whole of humanity and to everyone's heart: the cosmos.

Cursed, blessed, blasphemed.
Electric, empty, indifferent.
Pale, leaden, disrupted by clouds, lightning.
Fire red, dawn pink, placid, blue, immense, smog yellow.
In shock, in storm, in tears.
Skew, cut, in front.
Perforated with stars, cut from the cornices, streaked with trails, punctured by gas.
Desert, geographical, hollow.
Artificial, orthodox, blue.
Lysergic, chronic, metallic.
Little dance in the garden, in the attic or in a room.
Praised, investigated, questioned, teased, insulted, painted, scrutinised, humiliated, mocked, usurped, worn out, invoked, abused.
Low, tall, black, dazzling, naked.
Absurd, ironic, polite.
Virgin, winter, silent.
Over and by mistake.

Ottavia Casagrande,

theatre director

Museums System

The Leonardo museums bear exceptional witness to the technological and industrial memory and constitute an instrument of dialogue and constant sharing between the company and the territory. They were born out of the awareness that a large part of the industrial culture of our time is not only produced by the great cultural and educational institutions, but is also formed within companies. Living, dynamic structures, corporate museums represent a point of reference for communities and territories, centres of industrial culture open to visitors, researchers, students, economic and cultural operators.
