“Suspended Column” by the Italian Artist Silvana De Stefano

The Italian artist Silvana De Stefano

Silvana De Stefano was born in Naples and studied Architecture at the University “La Sapienza” in Rome. After graduating, the talented Italian artist moved to the USA, where she continued to study sculpture and painting. The turning point of De Stefano’s life was meeting the NYC-based art gallery owner Leo Castelli, who acknowledged her genius and encouraged her to become a commissioned artist. Today, Silvana De Stefano appears on the list of the most influential Italian artists, who has been featured at a range of exhibitions and has taken part in various art projects around the world. One of her most miraculous works is “Suspended Column.”

“Suspended Column”

“Suspended Column” is an 11-meter-high column (approx. 1.8 tons) installed within the courtyard of the Poli Palace in the heart of Rome. This architectural miracle is suspended at 3.60 meters above ground and supported by 4 steel cables attached to the top of the building. The column is diagonally divided into two parts, and here is where the magic begins.
