turismomilano RUOTA SOLARE

La Ruota Solare ha stimolato la fantasia di molti. C'è chi ha voluto vedervi il lavorìo di ingranaggi appartenenti a macchinari misteriosi o, addirittura, una rapida successione di note musicali. In realtà Arnaldo Pomodoro commenta così la sua opera: “La mia prima Ruota è stata fatta pensando al calendario azteco che colpì la mia immaginazione quando andai in Messico”. Infatti, il grande disco (4,5 metri di diametro) ispirato al calendario azteco, appare come un enorme sole di bronzo, cui il sole vero, secondo il lato che colpisce, conferisce suggestivi bagliori.
All'inizio l’opera era stata dotata di un meccanismo che la faceva ruotare su se stessa, con evidente allusione al movimento (apparente) del disco solare.

The “Solar Wheel” stirs the imagination, suggesting the gear mechanisms of mysterious machines or rapid successions of musical notes. Pomodoro’s own comment: "My first Wheel (Ruota) was inspired by an Aztec calendar that triggered my imagination during a trip to Mexico." In fact, the large disc (4.5 meters in diameter) was inspired by the Aztec calendar and resembles an enormous bronze sun, upon which the sun itself creates evocative glimmers of light, depending on which side of the disc it hits.
At the beginning, the piece was equipped with a mechanism that made it rotate on itself, obviously alluding to the movement that the sun appears to make in the sky.
