Metallic (in anodized aluminum or lead), folded by hand, Paolo Icaro's Neuronal Paths are attempts to represent the space occupied by thought, the electrical path that generates language: an instant, a spark that in the limited edition work conceived ad hoc for Alfabeto Treccani, it manifests itself as a burn, a scar that bears the sign of the energy consumed by intellectual activity.

Paolo Icaro Chissotti was born in Turin in 1936. In 1958, having abandoned his university studies at the Faculty of Letters of the University of Turin, he began to practice sculpture in the studio of Umberto Mastroianni.
After living a few years in Rome, he moved to New York from 1966 to 1968.
