Humanity is the main theme of Viola’s works. The artist explores people, bodies, faces in the attempt to reach perception, experience and spirituality. Through his art, man interacts with water and fire, light and darkness, life and rebirth.

Thanks to the Renaissance backdrop of Palazzo Strozzi, Viola’s works interact with the masterpieces of the past, from whom he drew his own inspiration, in a ballet between the classic and the contemporary.
