    Tramonto a New York

    "When I came to New York for the first time, I found the city full of energy. But on a subsequent visit, I felt that its vitality was less strong. I thought that the lack of it was the sign of decadence of this city. Sometime later I saw that the energy was back and New York was still the capital of twentieth century. Anyway I wanted to mark this impression with an object and so I made the "Sunset of New York" that at the time of the production was titled "Sunset in New York." Gaetano Pesce
