(...) Whenever I am writing a work, I face the challenge of striking a balance between ‘the freedom’ and ‘the necessity’. The equilibrium between them should not be seen as a static and still element, but as something continuously moving. This point of poise is the living heart of my work. Rather than as a ‘physical’ place within the work, it can be perceived as the meeting point of freedom and necessity. (...) Fulvio Caldini was born in Arezzo, Italy.
