La Sibilla (the Sybil)

La Sibilla (the Sybil) in viale A. De Gasperi

It was created in 1978 by the sculptor Giuseppe Marinucci (Ascoli Piceno, 1925 - 1981) and it belongs to the last phase of his artistic production,

"Sybil" was donated by his son Giacomo to the City along with another work, "The Butterfly" , exposed at the Palazzina Azzurra on the occasion of the exhibition dedicated to the artist in August 2008.
Located at the beginning of Alcide De Gasperi Avenue and enhanced by atomized warter and light plays, the "Sybil" is about two meters high and was built, like the "Butterfly", by assembling recycled ferrous materials that gives life to the fascinating mythological figure that has enchanted generations of artists and which gives its name to the mountains that characterize the Piceno.

"Giuseppe Marinucci - writes the critic Armando Ginesi - was a great manipulator of matter, capable to be in tune with it in order to give voice to feelings".
