Monumental sculpture installed on the first-class deck of the ship Costa Smeralda, new flagship of the Costa Crociere fleet.
COSTA SMERALDA - the most sensational Italy is on the sea.
Costa Smeralda, the newest flagship of the Costa Cruises fleet, is a tribute to Italy, to what makes our country loved and appreciated in the world. A real tour in the Bel Paese, whose best expression is found in the CoDe - Costa Design Collection Museum, the first museum built on a cruise ship. The undisputed protagonist of Costa Smeralda is the Italian art that finds its exposure in all the locations of the ship. In the collection also the sculpture "Les Plis De La Vie" created by Daniele Basso specifically for the Spanish Steps, on bridge 16.
Les Plis De La Vie
"The edge, physical expression of discontinuity, is the universal symbol of change, which through the repetition of small and big crises transforms the end into a new beginning. Unique concrete tool that nature has allowed us to evolve. But we need great awareness to overcome the limits. A scream against the sky releases our life energy. Everything changed. The crisis has passed. At that moment we have grown and with us the whole of humanity. Reflections in the mirror we discover that we are humanity! The future is in the hands of each of us".
Daniele Basso, Venice May 2013
