Life-size rhinoceros reproduction with eco-sustainable materials (clay, etc.).
It is called “Rinofiorito” since seeds have been scattered on its surface which, in spring, makes it literally “bloom”.
The artistic intervention, carried out by the Ecocampus Amici di Rino O.d.v. and by pupils and teachers of the primary school of Dusino San Michele at the instigation of Professor Maurizio Tessitore, is a reference to the discovery, in 1880, of a prehistoric rhinoceros skeleton during the works for the Turin-Genoa railway line.
The skeleton is now kept at the Museum of Natural Sciences of Turin.
