Penone has a paradoxal and empathic vision of the visible world, and leads us to a subtle discovery of its content and invisible parts, as he depicts and analyses it with most insight. He does not try to show pleasing or beautiful works, but his elegant and esthetic touch reveals the inner beauty of our environment…
