Scope and Content

The project series documents "Secoli E Milenni" a series of drawings by Pettena in 2014. The drawing series shows the passing of time through the illustration of a monument slowly decaying and overcome by nature. "With the passing of millennia everything may disappear and only traces remain of the fabric of previous cultures, superimposed one on the other, but in the end, Nature re-elaborates and recovers its role, prevailing in the end over the small quarrelsomeness of centuries: Nature recounts the millennia, the thousands, the millions of years." [1]

The project series contains six printouts of the drawings, a photographic reproduction showing all six drawings, and a video montage of the drawings.
