“Ah, Giotto! Let me see Paris and you, Paris, let me see Giotto”.
Hence Degas pointed out his will to reconcile his radical and at times brazen vision of the modern world with the need to never rule out the past. Similar feelings enliven the passionate research conducted by Jacopo, better known as Jago (Frosinone, 1987): his are the gift of synthesis and skills in his trade that turn into account concentration, a certain flair for stone blocks, closure and isolation. His hands are made to give life, through diuturnal exertion, to some sort of revelation regarding the eternal mystery of art. When admiring his works, all the strain disappears and gives way to the identification between art-life – the dream of every sculptor who intends to make his artwork throb with life. (Maria Teresa Benedetti)
