Menco and La Marianna
The names of the two sculptures are Menco and Marianna. They refer to two people from Perugia who have existed. However, there is no certainty about their real identity, and today the mystery is still unsolved. In any case, the statues are poetic proof of how reality and imagination are mixed in Brajo’s world.
La Troscia (The puddle)
In the fantasy world of the Fuseum, there is also water. Brajo Fuso makes the framework of this puddle with concrete in one solution, giving a shape close to those of natural puddles, including also the little circular island where there is vegetation.
In the forest surrounding Montebalbe, it happens very often to find birdwatching stations. Here, Brajo creates a station in which the visitor can climb up and see the beauty of the forest and its fauna from the top.
Il Parlamento (The Parliament)
This place represents an imaginary Parliament in charge of guiding a society of animals. Brajo Fuso creates a utopian place where political decisions are made by living beings who respect nature more than humankind.
Scultura mobile (Moving sculpture)
Springs of a train car shock absorber turn into metal disks hanging in mid-air and producing sounds when hitting among them. The yellow colour recalls stars and gives the feeling that Brajo brought into the forest the beauty of the sky, using the artistic style of moving sculptures, a typical element of the Surrealism by Alexander Calder.
Untitled, ’50s (before the creation of the Fuseum)
This path connects the central part of the forest to the Parliament area. Walking alongside the puddle, the visitor arrives at the two sculptures of Menco and Marianna. The whole path is scattered with sculptures and objects made with the assemblage technique, typical of Brajo Fuso.
A part of agricultural machinery turns into an artwork. The vertical thrust makes it similar to a magical totem. Spikes of machinery scraps recall thorns on the stems of roses: they aim to preserve the beauty of the sculpture, as thorns preserve the beauty of the flower.
