Buffaloes Invasion

As part of the ' Arte Alle Corti ' , these Mediterranean buffaloes stand in the space in front of the entrance to the Royal Palace, making their welcome to the visitors of the palace.

The work of David Rivalta fixed a meeting between three different elements: the shape of the animal (in this case of buffalo sculptures, which naturally preserved their presence sacredness of innocent); the Piazzetta Reale, a known and justified place; and finally, all those who are confronted with these guests. Invasion presence of hoaxes pose a question about the identity of the place. Their meeting is an epiphanic experience of otherness and index of openiness.

A strange place for them... which makes it work so well.
