RosAria is made of pluriball (recyclable polyethylene). While the churchgoer is praying, he says the rosary moving his fingers towards the cross, pushing down the air balls at the end of each prayer. When you get to the cross, your task is finished and all the bubbles are broken. The concept of mass industrial product, of poor quality, is transposed on a holy symbol of eternity which becomes a disposable object. Spirituality becomes serial and temporal, men perform a decisive action. The rosary function definitively ends when the believer feels his conscience is clean: prayers are passing moments which leave no traces.
