"The light wins the shadow" is an art exhibition of works of the seventeenth century, for the most part belonging to the Uffizi gallery of Florence, and these works have been hosted for the first time in Casal di Principe, in a villa confiscated to the Camorra. The villa, in its architectural shape, reflects exactly the false values of a place that has lost, through time, its close connection with the "ground work". In fact, the false friezes, the fake columns and the taste for excess enhance an elusive idea of "aesthetic" that has never belonged to architecture or to civilization. The project idea was to cover the entire villa with a new structure, a second skin which is detached from the building but, the not total opacity (of the added structure) shows what is behind. Simple tubes and a red net (used on construction sites) enfold the entire building which symbolically represents a "work in progress", emphasizing the work that remains to be done in these lands, thus giving justice to the honest citizens
