The Marino Marini Museum of Florence regularly conducts an educational itinerary for children and adults, which includes a study of some of the most significant statues from a visual as well as aural standpoint. Starting from a project by the museum’s Educational Department, Tempo Reale has designed and created the sonification of specific sculptures with a permanent installation aiming to underline their emotional characteristics. The installation applies to three works which also thematically represent Marino Marini’s creative path: “Cavallo”, “Cavaliere”, and finally “Il grido”, which have all been provided with a specially composed narrative musical structure capable of highlighting their evocative and expressive strength.
