The book investigates the natural phenomenon of “Upward Positive Leaders” - which is a rare phenomenon visible during the thunderstorms where the lightning comes from the ground going to the sky.
Lightning is the chosen element - a metaphysical symbol - to tell the desire and the necessity of working together. A manner of rethinking the terms of how to live the artist's role today.
It is the first collection of drawings in-depth overview of the artists’s interpretation of the theme, offer a rare look into the personalities of some of the most relevant Italian artists living and working today.
