Doors in Umbria, perceived in their diversity and ambivalence, have inspired this book. At doors something starts or ends. They allow or deny the change of space, create good or bad emotions in the viewer. They evoke memories, are access to renew or new experience.
Mediterranean coloration, in mild Sienna, goes through the whole book. The expressive formal language of the graphics - flat, symbolic, ornamentally accentuated - opposite the colloquialism of the poem, which preserves its artistic value through the revival of extinct metaphors. Overlaying Scripts stand for the multilayeredness of the poem. From the wooden gates of historical motte-and bailey castles to the electronically controlled glass doors of presence, it became a walk through the centuries as well as through the path of life.
