Edoardo Tresoldi has inaugurated a permanent installation on Reggio Calabria’s seafront, in Italy entitled Opera. Commissioned by the local Municipality and the Metropolitan City, the public art intervention “was created to celebrate the contemplative relationship between place and human beings through the language of classical architecture and the transparency of the Absent Matter”. Consisting of a colonnade of 46 pillars peaking at 8 meters located in a 2,500-square meter park, Opera, the open wire-mesh structure is accessible to both locals and visitors. Fully crossable, the new landmark designed by Edoardo Tresoldi is set to become one of the largest European public spaces. Tresoldi’s second installation in Calabria after Il Collezionista di Venti in 2013, and the second major permanent public artwork in Italy after the Basilica of Siponto in Apulia, Opera “is a monument to contemplation through which the place further defines itself”.
