Maria Callas, the “Divina” was staged at the scale of Milan in the 50s to sing “l’aria della follia” of the opera Lucia di Lammermoor by the composer Gaetano Donizetti. Deaf place, incense, lily of the valley, chords and opiate chords in an absolutely entrancing opera.
The madness of opium, tonka bean, balsamic fir is the basis of this olfactory sculpture. And in the face of that everyone becomes impotent and feels a dull pain, a sharp pain, almost a melancholy from the peach heart that warms up in solitude. Madness is an almost perfect world made up of lesions that inevitably leave scars from the fragrant furrows of lily of the valley. It is a moment in which you are on stage but thinking of being closed in a dark building waiting to be warmed by you and your life.
