Etruscan deity of the sun, dawn and beginnings. The Catalan artist Martiga created the artwork on recycled material found on site (satellite dish, stones and iron scaffolding). She used oil and acrylic colors for the painting.

"I wanted to represent the goddess Cautha with two faces, one linked to the sun, the other to the moon, at dawn. I painted the lunar side of Cautha inspired by the Head of Leucothea, an archaeological find of extraordinary beauty, exhibited at the National Etruscan museum of Villa Giulia in Rome. I created in one go the solar side of the Etruscan goddess on the other side of the satellite dish."

Fufluns By Valerio Giovannini

The second artwork in the Celscvil Earth-Art Park is dedicated to Fufluns, the Etruscan god of wine, counterpart of the Greek deity Dionysus. The art process started with the up-cycling of a six-meter sailing boat, which will be positioned in the southwest quadrant of the park, where Fufluns sits. 

During the residency of the Catalan artist Martiga (June 2023), Valerio began drawing on the starboard side of the hull using a permanent marker, in a classic comic-book style. During the next artistic residency (June 2024) the metal elements (the mast, the backstay, the forestay, the boom, the side rails) will be removed and the cockpit and deckhouse will be restored to make it watertight. The design will be then continued and elements will be added during the years. The art piece is in fact intended as a "work in progress" throughout the development of the environmental art park until its completion in 2030.

The artistic work consists of two main elements: on the one hand, the re-elaboration in images of a Homeric hymn recounting the kidnapping of the young Dionysus by the ‘Tyrrhenian Pirates’ (the Etruscans) and, on the other hand, the contemporary dramatic phenomenon of migratory flows in the Mediterranean. The work intends to contribute to the construction of a new narrative that sees the migratory phenomenons that have always characterized the history of humanity as an enrichment for mankind. By linking the past to the present and the present to the future, the work aims to stimulate a reflection on the cultural, human and spiritual value generated by the intertwining of human cultures.
