222222 Saddest Music in the World is a project conceived in October 2009 as a consequence of a massive land expropriation imposed by the state (Lombardy region) to the land owners and land inhabitants.
The expropriation is a long and painful bureaucratic process that not just takes away forever the natural home of plants animals and humans but also modifies and destroys in a irreversible way the native landscape with all its particular and unique geological aspects. In this transitory environment a group of artists realized a specific project as a manifestation of dissent, as a reaction to an unwanted situation. All the gestures are a “mise en scene” of the relation between man and his environment, the natural and the artificial merge into a series of visions. Each art practice generates ideas and dreams, raises new possibilities for confrontation and the understanding of humans.

THE SADDEST MUSIC IN THE WORLD e' un luogo temporaneo fatto di ambienti suburbani e situazioni relazionali periferiche. Uno spazio ibrido dove il mix di pratiche epressive si inserisce nei luoghi della devastante politica del territorio.

The phytolacca series

Broadly distributed in fields and waste places, and usually found in edge habitats. The seeds are dispersed by berry-feeding birds. Adapted to coarse or fine soils with moderate moisture, high calcium tolerance but low salinity tolerance, pH tolerance from 4.7-8. 
Grows well in sun or shade and readily survives fire due to its ability to resprout from the roots. In recent years the plant appears to have increased in populated places. 

When the wood is cut, the land is invaded by Phytolacca. Phytolacca produces ink.
