In 1999, Maria Grazia Lungarotti, President of the Lungarotti
Foundation, which runs the Olive and Oil Museum in Torgiano,
asked me to create an object for the museum based on the theme
of oil lamps.
Beginning in the very distant past, the oil lamp was for an
extremely long time an object in which oil had an important
role as a source of light.
The theme excited me, and my work on a single object gave
birth to so many objects that in 2000 they were displayed
in the foundation's exhibition rooms.
