The work indicated with the title "Silence", or "La dormiente", is partly in Pietra serena (the base) and partly in white marble veined with pink. Here Carlo Cerati engages with a patheticism that has deep roots in Italian art. His mastery gives the figure near death a force worthy of the greatest sculptors. If it is true that the bed seems to absorb in a definitive embrace the sparse features of the character, however there is a tremor in the marble folds that seems to allude to a distant (yet real) awakening.
