NuvolaProject for POP-IN NFT reverberates its message, bringing to the surface a journey through the light in projection, amidst the works of two now iconic collections, ‘Art Prophecies’ [find out more about creation process for these artworks] and ‘Messages from Earth.’ Six pieces, a single thread of discourse to navigate the phygital labyrinth of our contemporary world, where Art, both message and messenger, oracle and sibyl, becomes a bridge that connects the physical reality and the metaverse. It awakens and urges our awareness, calling us to be assertive actors, actively contributing to the construction of a better world.

From the masterpiece of the Italian Master Michelangelo and his famous “Sistine Chapel” of 1475 the Sibyl of Delphi, she whispers to us in ancient Latin one of her most famous, cruel and ambiguous prophecies: “ibis redibis non morieris in bello…”, her ironic laughter wants to underline the atrocious senselessness of war.
