My dreams

Gian Maria Tosatti’s work at Castel Sant’Elmo, My dreams, they’ll never surrender, is devoted to all those people who have spent their lives in prison because of their ideas.

My dreams
The work is focused on all those people who have spent their lives in prison because of their ideas which, at the end, have been strong enough to change the history from their jail with the power of their dreams of freedom and justice.
They are people like Antonio Gramsci, Nelson Mandela or even Rubin “Hurricane” Carter.
This permanent installation is a wheat field in the deepest, darkest and most fortified heart of Sant’Elmo Castle, the old fortress of Naples that have been used for centuries as a prison. The field needs to be regenerated constantly by Italian citizens as a ritual to demonstrate that it is possible to keep the field alive as the analogy of the heritage left to us by the men to whom the work is dedicated.
