Paesaggi Della Memoria [Landscapes of Memory] (1987)
The project series documents "Paesaggi Della Memoria", an installation presented at the Castello Aragonese, in Otranto in 1987. The installation consists of a small mound of sand on which is placed a plastic open suitcase and plastic cuttings that represent the mountains from Pettena's childhood landscape. This work by Pettena is a "metaphor for any possible personal interpretation of the universal theme of the landscape, bestow on it an artistic significance, the charge carried by the values of poetry, of the memory of a space and a time that here also acquire, thanks to the context, the “Mediterranean” dimension, reinforced by the presence of sand and the essential character of the setting." 
The project series contains sketches and installation photographs and videos.
