Mirror, photographic trompe by Lorenzo Scaretti

Mirror, photographic trompe-l‘oeil of an open door, 198x88 cm

Dedicated to Lewis Carroll 's "Alice Through the Looking Glass"

 

 

The artist wanted to add a new wing to his country pad, but knew he wouldn’t get planning permission. He therefore decided
on a "DIY" solution: with the help of Christina Monti, in one fell swoop he doubled the internal length of two existing
wings. Further: with the help of photographer Silvestro Forasassi, he channelled his long standing crush on the castle's 16th
century ghost Maria Salviati, and made her materialize! But in the process a second ghost also appeared. We presume it
must be the ghost of 15th century Caterina da Forlì, the mother of John of the Black Bands, and an attendant.
