“I know Antonio Nocera, I love his art because he is capable of interpreting authentic, true, testable and unique values, in a word, universal or – if you think better – intercultural”. Nocera is able to “see” the work of art that is born in the heart and then in the mind: while you talk to him his eyes light up [….] The nest makes you think seriously about the generous welcome: the nest is a house that has its door always open, is the place where every woman is the mother of life. The womb of the woman is a biblical image of the merciful tenderness of God, “He who has maternal bowels”. The house, the nest, is not only our today: it is above all our tomorrow, where to start to build our selves. “
