This work is dedicated to Lampedusa (Lopadùsa is the ancient Greek name of the island), the southernmost Italian island, very close to the Libyan coast.
Lampedusa is the gateway to Europe for the masses of "last" who set off on the desperate search for peace and the possibility of a future. The people of Lampedusa, an outpost of the rich west, but also its far south, are capable, in spite of everything, of extending a hand downwards, into that deep abyss which conceals even our deepest fears and our inability to abandon the little certainties, in the name of a broader and higher vision ... that of a community of solidarity living beings, cooperating in the name of Good and Life.
We must have the courage to imagine a new world, in which solidarity and cooperation become the pillars of our living together.
By opening houses and sharing bread, the people of Lampedusa have made their island an outpost of that humanity now alien to the rich and technological West.
And this courageous example of them can also show us the way to go to reinvent our world.
A more human world, capable of placing the Human Being, and all forms of life, at the center of our universe.
Lopadùsa is a tribute to all the women and men of Lampedusa.

Marco was born in Bari in 1971, into a distinguished Neapolitan family. He is a descendent of the philosopher Tommaso Campanella. He inherited his skills from his ancestor Emanuele Caggiano, Master sculptor of the 18th.Century Neapolitan school, as well as master of Vincenzo Gemito, and Giuseppe Sciuti, a Sicilian painter, considered to be the most important southern's fresco painter in the 1800s. As a young child he was taken by his family to Canada hence familiarising himself with Anglosaxon culture. Since a young age Marco expressed himself through drawing and sculpture, beginning his studies with the Neapolitan artist Tullia Matania. After finishing his studies at the Liceo Artistico of Naples, he attended the Istituto Europeo di Design in Rome and at the same time studied naturalistic illustration with Franco Testa. His first books were published simultaneously with a variety of Neapolitan editors and he attended further Master classes with Adelchi Galloni and Lisbeth Zwerger. In 1998 he began working with Dami Editors ( The Giunti Group) for whom he created many well known characters that have acquired international fame, first and foremost Topo Tip which has sold 10 million copies and been translated into 35 languages ( from this character an animated cartoon TV series has been created by a International Co-production company which can be seen on Rai TV channels and in 65 other countries) . In 2000 he moved to Swizerland where he started to work in the Atelier of the Argentine sculptress Gabriela Spector. In 2003 his statue of Mother Theresa of Calcutta was installed in the Piazza bearing her name. The Mayor and Cardinal of Naples were present along with a large delegation of Indian citizens with the Mayor of Calcutta. Subsequently he created a bronze Madonna for the Posillipo Centre of Naples, set in an ancient Roman grotto on the Posillipo promontary. At the same time he was commissioned for the plan of Christ Risen for the facade of the Church of SS.Trinity in Naples. In 2005 he created, for the Community of Living Ethic in Città della Pieve, a bronze bust of Helena Roerich, wife of the famous Russian painter, Nicholas Roerich. In 2010 He married the journalist tiziana alterio. In May 2019, he created a large personal exhibition entitled "Crisis and Rebirth" in the prestigious setting of the Palatine Chapel of the Maschio Angioino, in Naples.
