The message that the artist, Romanian by birth and Italian by adoption, intends to transmit, is the "mutation" of meaning that takes place in the turning of history: born to celebrate the conquest of Dacia by the Romans, the Trajan's Column became with time the symbol of the inseparable historical link between Italy and Romania; if in the past it evoked the two wars brought by the Emperor against Decebalus, the King of the Dacians, today the Roman masterpiece is also a visual testimony of the origin of the Rumanian people.
Completely made of aluminium, consisting of a 90 cm wide strip (about 3 Roman feet) and 34.05 m long, the installation is spread over a length of about 12.50 m, with a diameter of 1.40 m, maintaining a proportional ratio with the Trajan's Column of 1 to 3. It is entirely painted with a particular graphic-pictorial technique that the artist has been developing for years, starting from the silk-screen printing by hand, which makes the work unique. The inside shows a tribute to the Dacians, through symbols of pre-Dacian culture and spirituality, some linked to the theme of death. The contrast between the white of the writings close to the Roman lapidary character and the black of the symbolic drawings evokes the sense of drama, but in a contained and reflexive way, with traces of joy, typical feeling of the Dacians before facing sacrifice.
The external side instead has an intense colour impact that evokes the force of life in a "colour world". Through more than 50 drawings, the artist has interpreted some marble representations. The symbols, the icons and the scriptures are the instruments of her personal evocation, to build a new story that does not contradict or reproduce but supports the original work from a free and imaginative perspective.
