Description: In early 2013, Saracino created The Guardians: Hero and Superhero, a permanent public art project for the plaza at Three Bryant Park, NYC. Hero is a gift from Italy to the United States, donated by the Italian Government with the support of the worldwide energy company Eni. The Guardians: Hero and Superhero, consists of two public sculptures on view permanently at Three Bryant Park in Midtown Manhattan. The sculpture Hero soars upward through a system of marble plates stacked in repeated planes, which recall the architecture of the surrounding skyscrapers and suggest the movement of the figures within their environments.
