Pesce fuor d'acqua

This artwork by the sculptor Giovanni Menada, contains a clear warning for all of us, starting from its name : "Fish outside Water"

Piazza Duca degli Abruzzi

42121 Reggio Emilia


The work was commissioned and funded by the families Spallanzani and Beans, was placed in front of Palazzo Santa Croce (the former seat of Bingo), is "reserved domain" of the client and has the objective of training the public and private surrounding. It 'located where once ran a diversion channel of the Secchia, which fed the silk of Santa Croce, one of the largest in Italy. So a bucket that draws local history and tradition and a fish to stimulate reflection "of one of the conditions of man," as he said the author.
