The AL 13 (Leggero come Alluminio), 2014 by Matteo Tampone is a spaceship, a cone of luminous metal that endlessly turns on its axis. An invisible mechanism ensures its suspension. Here lightness is physical and metaphysical, the result of a technological trick, to which the metal lends itself, but it is also an allusion, beyond the spatial imaginary, to another lightness, that of the soul that rises towards a pyramid of blue.
