[Extract] In the Chiesa di Santa Maria della Vita in Bologna six figures surround a mutilated body that bears the physical signs of a brutal and untimely death. Upon their faces are palpably etched shock, grief, sorrow and despair, a maelstrom of intense feelings that torment them, and which are dramatically reflected in their distinctive, dynamic postures. These are bodies in crisis, in the grip of sensations so violent as to cause both physical and psychic harm.
