Over the last sixty years, an elderly artist has been working on a monumental collection of stones: La Ricerca.
Exploring the Adige river and the Lessinia mountains, Luigi Lineri has collected and catalogued countless pebbles with human and animal shapes, reminiscent of mysterious prehistoric sculptures.
Evoking mythological images, his artwork pays homage to the struggles of men and women who lived through the infancy of our species, allowing us to become what we are.
