Noi e loro (A link, a gap, a loss, a clue, a metaphor, a memory) Ostia 2011
A field separates the ancient town of Ostia and a small synagogue (both unearthed). The field contains more remains from the past but funding to continue the archaeological search has not been sourced. Since scientists did not return to open the ground to find what is hidden (a suburb, a settlement, a ghetto?), the field has been used to grow medicinal plants and more recently to host an artwork (placed on lecterns around the field, with names randomly selected from the 2011 city of Ostia phone book). The plants and the art share the field and preserve the secret of the two ancient sites: the space between them they cannot claim.
