The exhibition displaysimages of several stops along an artistic and research-orientedjourney, including documentary material such as topographicalmaps, photographs in black and white, newspaper clippings,travel diaries and samples, installations and paintings by thetwo authors. The project is conceived inside a PineCube, aplace of meditation made of wood, iron and glass suspendedamidst the branches of a pine tree in the park of the Majellamassif. The exhibition's itinerary, curated by Chiara Serri, isdivided in two parts: the first section in the Sala Capitolareincludes videos, findings and documents; the second section isin the Baroque Chapel and displays a dozen works, created witha mixed technique, placed in the lateral niches. The twoartists drew their inspiration from "Spaziergang", a poemwritten by Rainer Maria Rilke in 1924 and they chose Prague fortheir exhibition because they wanted to complete the projectwith another walk on the "Giant Mountains" in the CzechRepublic, in order to create a connection between Majella andKrkonose.
