Se siamo assenti suonare qui

Pierino (b. 1937) is an accumulator. I can recognize his way to accumulate very common through the people of his age that come from the rural area; the aim of the accumulation is basically aimed at preserve fragments, iron (in order to sell it), wood and all the components of electrical and mechanical devices that can be useful in order to fix mulfunctions of the machines used in the field. 
 I noticed that Pierino has a slight attraction to sounds/sounding things and sometimes he reassembles things creating rudimental sound-devices that are scattered in the field and used for entertainment and as sound signals.

Horn: If we are absent play here

Cymbal: an old and very cheap cymbal that I bought in a flea market (more than ten years ago) and that I had trashed in the garbage. I found this cymbal reassembled with a system of suspension made with a car belt, two screws and a rusty iron knocker. The cymbal and the knocker, in that condition, are let free to move on the wind spreading small sounds by touching one to another. Pierino put this cymbal in there bacause when he hears its sound he remembers me and the time when I was playing the drums all the day in his shed. Rina, on the other hand, has started to beat it as loud as possible in order to advise Pierino when the lunch is ready instead of shout at him…
