Criticized by Daniele Radini Tedeschi: “Marilena Rango can be considered a polyhedric artist who, in addition to revolving around the female figure, presenting their sensual characteristics, deepens the issues related to human existence. In this work, the magic of nudity and its passion are very evident. The spell of the fountain is comparable to a Fellini scene, but linked to the homeland of our artist: Cassano allo Ionio (CS). The clear reference is Piazza Sant’Eusebio, in which there is an imposing travertine structure with a large drinking trough in which the figure is immersed in the foreground. In the background, through a veiled setting, you can see piazza Sant’Eusebio and the Cathedral, the Basilica of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Lauro.”
