PU-PI-LLA (through the looking glass) 

Three tower-shaped monoliths, in three types of glass (AGC Black Pearl, AGC Mirox 3G and Planibel Linea Azzurra) offer the viewer three different levels of ‘look’, proposing the theme of ‘choice’, performed in accordance with its ability to take responsibility.

Glass, in all the works of Raul Gilioli, is a fundamental element due to its characteristics.
In this work, it become a powerful symbol of solid strength, at the same time, fragility.

It’s transparency and translucency: the tower that are being built are imprisonment, but also protection,
The Glass slabs, during the performance, will be assembled to three towers which imprisoning three female within.

Narcissus was in love with his reflection in the pond and Alice crossed the mirror, for Socrates, the pupil-la gives us the opportunity to choose: reflect or look beyond: scrutinising the soul.

Look beyond is also the Vision of the AGC group that supports with Cilvea this installation, because the Glass is an ancient material with which man can build the highest skyscrapers, but must be used with respect and responsibility. Just as the relationships between man and women.
