The volume constitutes the catalogue of Francesco Bartoli's project for mudaC | Museo delle arti Carrara and brings together images, drawings, photos, notes, and sketches documenting the genesis of the film of the same name and its final installation. The volume is conceived to disseminate the project on display and as a vehicle to promote tourism and the local cultural heritage. The project "Sculpting the Wind" by Francesco Bartoli, winner of the PAC - Plan for Contemporary Art 2021 of the General Directorate for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Culture, curated by Laura Barreca, included the production of a film and it is one of the 39 projects selected from the 98 proposals that reached the 2021 edition of the call for proposals, for the acquisition, production, and valorization of works of contemporary art and creativity destined for the Italian public heritage. The title of the work is freely inspired by Andrej Tarkovskij's famous book "Sculpting Time", and in line with the museum's cultural orientation, it takes the form of a poetic narration and a dialogue with the territory of the Apuan Alps, linking together past and present, sculpture and landscape, art and technological innovation. The project was also realised with the collaboration of the Omero Museum for the Blind in Ancona and in partnership with the Academy of Fine Arts in Carrara. "The production of a work as complex as Bartoli's," commented the museum's director Laura Barreca, "is an extraordinary opportunity to reinterpret the Carrara area through creativity and poetic intuition, the outcome of which will be a film that will become part of the mudaC's permanent collection, thanks to the support that the DGCC has allocated to support Italian museums through the PAC Piano per l'Arte Contemporanea 2021.
