"La Passione di Ornella" is part of a series of symbolic and surreal performances that investigate the sense of denial in daily life through the same gestures repeated endlessly in which the concepts of Waiting, Absence, Hope and in this case Passion, become the elements carriers of the context that goes to be created.

For four hours the actress-performer Noemi Medas fixed the cross made from a broom and a dustpan with her palms facing the sky. The hands are covered with gloves as a housewife. Bare feet above the ground and a crescendo of suffering in the face that flows slowly into tears but always contained and disciplined, without any real emotional explosion. The performance was acted in the art gallery "Quartissimo".
