Mexican artist Rivelino is the author of the temporary sculpture installation I Nostri Silenzi that occupies Villa Borghese's magnolia-lined avenue near the Pincio terrace. With his ten mute bronze busts, the artist conceptually deals with the theme of silence as absence of verbal communication and hindrance of freedom of expression.

    That's my same consideration, they should represent all ethnic groups, but they all look very Asian to me.

    Ciao

  5. Fascinating -- a study in silence. Takes on such a different meaning if it's imposed! Viva la freedom of expression! ciao for now

  6. Italians seem so voluble to us Americans. Does this seem appropriate to Romans?

    Hardly. We are talkative, boisterous and just plain loud. Plus we talk with our hands too, which makes these guys feel so left out!
