Memory (Memoria)

Next to Casa Bettoni there is an ancient fountain:
however, the water escapes from a recent bronze mask that represents a face.

The work of Kaspar Ludwig represents the face of a contemporary Biennese known to the inhabitants: Lucio Avanzini.

The quote has a precise meaning: Lucio is the Cestaio of the village, and it is usual to let the "stroppe" rest in the water before using them for the production of the baskets.
In honor of this passion it was decided to place the sculpture in Via Contrizio.

The work is located in Via Contrizio just before the junction between Piazza Roma and Via Castello.
