Strong are the messages of our alchemist Fabio Petani, who mixes chemical and botanical knowledge in an investigating union of the natural essence. Work that winks at the ancient popular wisdom of recognizing plants, but his work is a deeper research, each of his works is a piece of a herbolarium and of the table of elements. Nothing is given to chance, each plant and each element are chemically linked together, this natural and alchemical link between plants and elements develops, because everything is linked to the territory in which the intervention is carried out. Fabio leaves scattered throughout the world reflections aimed at respect for nature and every molecule. The alchemical dichotomy of the universe is represented. Everything is represented with strong delicacy, the color palette is almost always soft and gives elegance to his works, the colors always chosen to embellish the pages are from his herbarium in the most balanced way possible with the surrounding landscape, so much from a distance his works as one with the previous architecture. To counteract this kindness he contrasts the use of vigorous geometric elements, which break up the linear vision of the whole, the focal point of his works are the phytomorphic figures, which are not banal decorative elements but the botanical heritage of the territory in which they act, these elements floral tend to establish a solid relationship between work and territory. Thus they create the message for those who identify it to regain possession of the natural knowledge of the world, investigating it with a new look, deepening it with the means of science. Because this alchemical combination will bring us back to appreciate what surrounds us and may perhaps be the key to understanding a part of universal functioning.
