  "I am a singing violin. I am the peacefulcomposure of a marble bust, I am the alembic of a magical filter, I am in ecstasy… But already you turn in another direction, your city is calling you, your body is so warm with love, yet your face is cold and grey."

The theme of the dawn – Aurora - occurs frequently in Mazzucconi’s paintings. In the painting (Aurora 1978) the awakening of Man struggling with the desire to return to the material womb of night (i.e. with his tormented unconscious mind) was a painful one. Now, many years later, with his unconscious mind finally liberated, the impersonal encounter of day and night is formally celebrate.

  In one hand you hold a branch, leafy Below, where it comes near the yellow patch of sunlight, bare and unlit above, where the moon slowly moves from one phase to the next. In your other hand you hold your own foot: you are the beginning and the end, the sun and the moon, the day and the night… and the seasons of the year dance around you in harmony. All is circular!
