Parcobaleno is an installation that transforms the rainbow, the symbol of peace, into a place to live, where you can play, smile and feel free. Parcobaleno is based on the desire to build peace through play, because, as Plato says, in order to live in peace, you have to live by playing! In this installation, the rainbow becomes a real space with large swinging-coloured rays to touch, clouds to walk through (the youngest can also climb and sit on) and Colorama, a large 10-metre- high inflatable sculpture celebrating the rainbow and its colours. Parcobaleno is an explosion of hope, joy of living and an invitation to freedom, but the most beautiful aspect of this work is created by you playing and smiling together.
Stefano Rossetti is a polyhedral artist who moves from graphics to immersive installations, from wood carving in African villages to product design. His theme parks Parcobaleno and Rainbow Park (currently at the hydroscalo in Milan) have been accepted by museums and city centres around the world. His work conveys values and positive emotions through vivid shapes and colours and addresses issues of common interest by touching consciences with a smile.
