A small village in Abruzzo, Italy : every year, to honor Saint Dominic, his statue is carried in the streets and covered with alive snakes, which the inhabitants handle with familiarity but great care. From the rite, Solinas keeps these contacts, that she observes through the eye of Michel de Certeau, envisioning the man in prayer as a “forest of gestures.”
