After the restoration of the Pantheon of Certosa di Bologna, which took place ten years ago, Flavio Favelli has been invited to set up the new space, that is dedicated to the celebration of funeral ceremonies which are not bound to any religion.

Flavio Favelli’s work has been dealing with the theme of interior space for a long time. The title of this project refers to a place where the single waits for transformation, where people can assembly and reflect in the moment of the passage from life to death.

Black and white marbles of irregular forms compose the floor, two banks on the sides of the room, a series of chandeliers hanging from the ceiling on different levels, a mirrored wall in front of the entrance. Every element in the space is filled with memory and symbols. Through the union of past and present, of architecture and art, of spirituality and meditation, Flavio Favelli has created a space in which people can say goodbye to their beloved and at the same time heal the rift with the idea of death and its celebration which characterises contemporary society.

The book is edited only in the original language, Italian.
