The work was born out of a commission by art collector Maria Pia Incutti for Villaggio Verdalia, a reception space obtained from a former quarry in Lecce. In “Panca degli Sposi” (Bench of the Spouses) it is possible to see an anthropomorphic transposition of the object that turns into a space of reception and where are presented elements that are useful for the act of sharing – cups, bowls, saucers – yet precious for the moment of being sitting there. The works of Ugo Marano often translate the ideas of creating a community, of reception, of encounter and, in this light, the artist had previously realised works like “La Panca del Viaggiatore Urbano” (Bench of the Urban Traveller) , “La Panca per una Città in Espansione” (Bench for an expanding city), “Panca 108” (Bench 108).
