The author analyses Alejandro Marmo’s art which is mainly characterised by sculptures made with objec trouvés. The figurative and abstract pictorial images are depicted through the dynamic perception of light and harmony of colours. They convey contemplative spiritual feature, tradition, faith and hope. The book The Strength of Heart is a metaphor for goodness, brotherhood, salvation, solidarity, comfort, help and courage in the Third Millennium. It is a message of love and peace that starts from the heart and radiates into the world. The sculptures and paintings are essentially focused on the visible but theories and thoughts are inseparable from emotional involvement and creativity.
