Archeology of the Future – Exhibit by Fabrizio Plessi

  • Italian Cultural Institute @ Embassy of Italy 3000 Whitehaven Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20008 United States (map)

An Installation by Acclaimed Italian Artist

Fabrizio Plessi

Before the birth of light,

When all was ash, motionless and still

Before the great arousal of quartz,

When the only light was that of the sun,

Before the opaque solidity of the earth,

When all was mud and damp mire,

Before the flow of icy water,

When all was glowing basalt magma,

Before even the obstinate strength of fossils,

When all the grey stones of the earth slumbered,

That! Yes, that was the ideal moment

To dig and draw from the dark depths of time

“The archaeology of the future”.
