The Essence of Lightness occupies the 45th Floor at 3 World Trade Center in New York and was inspired by the art and culture of his city of Pompeii. Petrucci began his career in film, working with the likes of Martin Scorsese and the Manetti Brothers. He then moved to Naples where he attended the Academy of Fine Arts to study set design. His experience in cinema was ultimately the inspiration which led to his work in the visual arts field. Check out Petrucci’s art and story online at
