Waterbones. Climbing in transition state

It is the permanent installation placed at the entrance of the Lazzerini library, a public art project realized in Prato to promote the city's identity as a place of contemporary culture.

The work by Loris Cecchini, an artist who grew up in Tuscany and internationally active, was purchased by the Municipality of Prato coinciding with the thirty years of activity of the Pecci Center (1988-2018).
It is made up of 500 stainless steel modules, designed by the artist to be aggregated and diffused in the environment as synapses of an organic system or a climbing mechanism that continuously reflects the light, it is composed in a single sinuous texture invading the concrete wall next to the entrance of the Lazzerini Library, assuming the symbolic value of regeneration and transformation, of the reactivation and growth inherent in the memory of the old textile factory recovered to a new cultural life and a lot of work that underlies it.
