Nature constitutes a source of inspiration which Carlo Maria Maggia, interested in the architecture of the landscape and its history, is unable to renounce. A golden yolk emerges from a pure white eggshell, a precious object that alludes to the collections of natural curiosities amassed by German princes, better known as Wunderkammer.
