Italy. Lombardy region. Campione d'Italia. Campione d'Italia is occupying an enclave within the Swiss canton of Ticino, separated from the rest of Italy. Two women walk in the city center. « Pan Dormante » (1975)  is a metal sculpture by the artist Alessandro Nastasio. In mythology, Pan is the god of the wild, shepherds and flocks, nature of mountain wilds, rustic music and impromptus, and companion of the nymphs. He has the hindquarters, legs, and horns of a goat, in the same manner as a faun or satyr. He is also recognised as the god of fields, groves, wooded glens and often affiliated with fertility. 28.01.22 © 2022 Didier Ruef
