«Wanting to deal with natural issues without geometry is an attempt to do what it is impossible to do» Galileo Galilei
Wanting to deal with natural issues without geometry is an attempt to do what it is impossible to do” Galileo Galilei “Fibonacci” is designed to symbolize surfaces based on the aesthetics of Fibonacci sequence, a 12th century Italian mathematician from the Republic of Pisa. He theorized a numerical sequence whose relationship between two consecutive numbers, results in the golden ratio, already discovered by Phidias during ancient times. You can find the golden ratio in numerous expressions of nature: this is the ratio that guides the form of many things around us, such as shells, hurricanes, galaxies and the human body itself. It is also the aesthetical canon that guided architecture since the Renaissance to the present. Since ancient Greeks, artists from all ages paid homage to this hidden number of Nature, creating works of architecture, sculpture and music that reflect this precise numerical sequence. Among these works, we would like to cite the United Nations Secretariat Building by Le Corbusier, the “Parthenon” by Phidias, “The Art of Fugue” by J. S. Bach and “The Birth of Venue” by Botticelli. Enter the geometrical vortex of beauty.
