Alessandro Zambelli he chooses one of the best known miracles of the Christian tradition - the only one described in all four Gospels - and creates the PANIEPESCI seat.

Pigeonhole in the reality of everyday life logic mysterious and elusive of a miracle, a difficult task in words, complex with one or more images, almost impossible (maybe) with an object. Try to do it Alessandro Zambelli.

That's a mosaic of squares encloses and at the same time reveals the symbolic elements and the very essence of the miraculous: are the blue sea and the golden grain - to represent the multiplied loaves and fishes - to alternate in San Filippo; it is the number 5 - so present in the descriptions of the sacred text - that defines its order of magnitude. This seat seems almost “extracted” from the dome of the Pantheon: in fact PANIEPESCI could also be seen in this way, as a small daily “Pantheon”, more contained and familiar. Like a small and reassuring domestic votive architecture.
