DESCRIPTION  


[ENG] The Polished Stone


«There is a Hindu story about a master who says that to attain wisdom and happiness, we must be like stones and pebbles on a river bed, knowing that the water will always inevitably flow over them. The stone lets the river run softly or swiftly by, allowing the current to slip over its skin, to smooth its asperities and model its body. The water remains clean and transparent, never clouded, leaving the stone or pebble undisturbed to enjoy the alternating of day and night and the changing seasons.


The Intesa Sanpaolo pavilion is composed of three stones, all of them polished and rounded by water. They are attached to one another and from different positions they look like a single stone. Through the stones the water has hollowed out its course.»

[ITA] Il sasso levigato


«Una storia indù racconta di un maestro che per ottenere la saggezza e la felicità, bisogna diventare come i sassi nel fiume che sanno che l'acqua passerà sempre inevitabilmente sopra. Il sasso la fa passare con indifferenza e lascia che la corrente scivoli sulla pelle, arrotondando le asperità, modellandone il corpo. L'acqua rimane pulita e trasparente, non si intorpida e il sasso può rimanere indisturbato a godersi l'avvicendarsi del giorno e della notte e il cambio delle stagioni.


Il padiglione di Intesa Sanpaolo è composto da tre sassi levigati dall'acqua e tutti arrotondati. Sono attaccati gli uni agli altri e da diverse posizioni appaiono un sasso solo. Tra i sassi l'acqua ha scavato il suo solco.»
