Cala Gadir, a term of Arabic origin which means ‘Valley of water’ is a location known since old times for its natural hot water springs and still nowadays is one of the most well-known locations of this island. The great central basin is surrounded by Pantelleria’s typical rounded gardens, fields, vineyard-covered cliffs, quarries that slope down to the sea and layered rock.
This panel brings together inlays, grafts and bas-relief, all the natural elements which are unique to this island. On a Bianco Fenice stone base, engraved with an undulated design, soft, geometrical elements are inserted into marble of various colours and texture, finished and applied manually. The panel is further decorated and embellished through the application of small, copper elements.
