CHIUSO - Palazzo dello Sport Roma (ex Palalottomatica)

Roma boasts a wealth of ancient Egyptian obelisks, but not everyone knows that there is also a more recent obelisk in the city, which can be seen entering Rome from Via Cristoforo Colombo or Via Pontina, positioned in front of the Sports Complex. The sculpture, dated 2003, was crafted in bronze by Arnaldo Pomodoro; it is 21 metres high and 7 metres in diameter and aims to illustrate the history of the twentieth century it is named after.

The author’s intention is that the rising, enveloping spiral shape should convey a sense of continual progress, of movement and on-going evolution, with the cavities, holes and twists representing the emptiness and the dark sides of the history of the 20th century.
