THE FORGING

In some African populations, even primitive, but enough to know the technique evolved from the smelting of iron, the blacksmith is considered a sorcerer, a magician, one who has powers far beyond those of other men.

After seeing the forging of an ax butcher from Mr. Rizzi, in Premana, I felt very close to the Africans.

Two bushes for eyebrows, powerfully built, dark skin, a wide and bright smile : Mr. Rizzi seems like someone came out from a storybook. It's a good character and powerful persone, speaks little, while forging does not speak at all. With the pliers pulled from the forge, in a whirl of sparks, a yellow pad red hot iron and placed under the hammer, a gesture calm, safe and made automatic for years (or should I say centuries?) Experience. Fast, smooth and powerful shots occupy any space. In my mind confused by the noise you stamp the image sequence that block strong steel and obedient to every shot turns, stretches, expands, it flattens, bends.

Through a series of forms that series, those forms, nothing is random.

In the mind of the forger runs without errors, the long series of images that generations, for centuries, have been handed down, that centuries of attempts have slowly discovered, and each image is a gesture, a precise movement, the iron is moved, a new blow create a shape, another image, another movement ...

The piece of steel becomes an ax, with his unmistakable silhouette, flawless, black, rough, but perfect.

It's been twenty, maybe thirty seconds.

The hammer is silent. My mind reconcentrate. Mr. Rizzi smiles. Seems to come from a magical state in which time had stopped. I think he is the master of what he does: if he would create a new and different form, would know how to change the sequence of images in his mind and what movements do.

I think Africans are right.
