"When my curator Lucas Cuturi suggested me to exhibit some sculptures in a hospital room for Parallel in Wien, I immediately thought I had to create works without color driven by some respect for any sick children who live in hospital rooms every day. 
 Then one day in June I met Prof. Piero Abruzzese, a pediatric surgeon of Turin and I told him about my future exhibition. He told me that the room had to be the symbol of happiness, joy, life, play and fun. A world full of colours. This is how The balloons room was born, a kingdom of play, fun, color, life and mostly … full of balloons."
