The Little Saint / La Santuzza

The author chooses to represent Santa Rosalia in an unprecedented way, inspired by Iconic B, the project in which Alicata retraced the history of fashion photography, using the most famous doll in the world. In this case, a reference work is chosen from the painter Giuseppe Velasco which was made in the eighteenth century, is still preserved at the Cathedral of Palermo in the Chapel of the dedicated Saint, who freed the city from the plague in 1625.

Paying homage to a symbol of Western culture, Sicily and Palermo in particular, in the year in which it is the capital of culture, for the author it represents a personal tribute to the symbols of culture that he always breathed and an attempt to meet religious themes and contemporary art.
