“Auria’s work, entitled Personal / Unpersonal, takes inspiration from the great men who built the city of Florence and who were represented by animal emblems. For example: the turtle is the symbol of Cosimo I, the perfect image to define prudence and wisdom together, or the rhino for Alessandro de Medici, to symbolize his strength and will.”
