Alba Fucens is an archaeological site, a Roman colony located in the province of Aquila, in Italy. I visited this site in 2016 and was impressed by the total immersion in the surrounding mountainous landscape. the impression that time in that place had stopped for centuries was real; around there were no references to the contemporary era. Not far from the site, on the same day I found bony remains belonging to animals that had once grazed in those fields. The similarity between those bony remains and the capitals of the columns seen within Alba Fucens were extraordinary. I therefore decided to make bronze columns whose bases and capitals were the two animal finds found near the site.
