Most people don't think about metal wires beyond their functional use, Mattia Trotta, however, uses them as a form of artistic expression.

He models shapes with intertwined metal wires, using a personal, innovative technique. Smith and weaver at the same time, Mattia moulds shapes with steel, silver, aluminum and bronze. Grace and power originate from the artist's hands, in the act of giving form to the simple matter, through the use of a wire that visibly vibrates under our eyes. His sculptures have no dimensional limits, and many of them adorn various squares and parks in Italy.

He notes - “Every line has its reason to exist, the work of art is solid; nevertheless the wind flows through it and the air integrates with the volume, connecting the sculpture with the surrounding environment.”
