“Me, Cristina, I come out of silence with all of myself. Me free, me in love with everything I believe in, me loosened by all constriction. There is no flame that extinguishes me, water that drowns me, prison that imprison me. I immerse myself, until I am pierced, by all my passions”.
The image of Cristina is inspired by Byzantine frescoes of the Cripta di Santa Cristina in Carpignano Salentino, in Apulia. Falling into the silence of a Crypt that speaks about the ancient Byzantine world is a great emotion for us, and even more to find the figure of a Saint who represents so strongly the struggle for what you believe in.
