Title

Giallo-Dromo

Description

Flavio Favelli conceives this project, together with the architect Flavio Gardini and the engineer Matteo Grilli, for a competition curated by Bartolomeo Pietromarchi.
The artist envisiones the creation of an outline of the old nuclear power plant in Caorso, opened in the Seventies and closed only eight years after. The power plant was dismantled in 2009 by the company Sogin, Società Gestione Impianti Nucleari (Nuclear Power Plants Management Company), which also promoted the competition. Starting from the premises of the designation letter, Favelli conceives a complex full-sized work which represents the shape of the former power plant as a memorial, a sculpture dedicated to the history of a placereflecting a much debatedissue of the last forty years such as the one of nuclear energy. The artwork consist of the full scale creation of the former power plant's outline - width 24.98 cm and height 9,98 cm - countoured by yellow neon. The work could remind of a triumphal arch, even if it doesn't celebrate political or military achievements, but instead it becomes a simulacrum of the power plant itself, a memory-sign of the building's exact structure, employed   to try to salvage the remembrance of the landscape. Its urban dimension makes the viewer enter a state of temporal bewilderment, almost a déjà vu, an alteration of memory through the construction of an ephemeral architecture. The project was canceled due to a change in the company's management.
