The triptych Aclive was conceived from a narrative of the poet Petrarca and its climb to Mount Ventoux (1336). "At that time it was not common to climb hills without reason, at almost 2,000 meters of altitude and whipped by the cold and dry mistral, blowing at 100, 200 and 300 km / hour, which, moreover, explains the name from the mount. After many stumbling, he finally reached his goal. The date of the work, more precisely, 1336 april 26, is taken as the initial mark of the modern gaze on the landscape, because Petrarch only climbed by mere curiosity, simply by the desire to see a place reputed for its height. Once at the top, accidents, miseries and ugliness from below are canceled out: deformities, smells, noises. Up there, the vision reigns, a vision without obstacles, aseptic, free of the disturbances that the proximity, by a conspiracy of all the senses leaves exposed. The world recedes when seen from above the mountain. On the other hand, what is so far becomes close, as Petrarca observed, when he looked up from the summit of Ventoux, the lands of Italy, from which he felt so far away. But he also perceived, satiated almost to the intoxication by the view from the top of the mountain, that he turned away from himself. Driven by such opposing forces, he began to reflect on life and made his way back without uttering a single word. "
