MISERICORDIA
"Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful"
(Lk 6,36)

The installation MISERICORDIA is Hungary's homage to Rome for the extraordinary Jubilee Year called for by Pope Francis, which also coincides with the Year of St. Martin celebrated in Hungary in honour of the 1700th anniversary of the saint's birth. It is a gesture of cultural communion that intends to raise awareness - with the help of modern technology and the sensitivity of the contemporary artists involved in the project - among a potentially worldwide audience.

The artwork is a three-dimensional reproduction of the word "misericordia", which means 'mercy'. Applied to the twelve letters are prints of twelve paintings by Hungarian and Italian artists who have explored the topic of mercy. The sides of the letters display the colours of the Italian and Hungarian flags (both red, white and green). On the backs of the letters, viewers can read the artists' reflections on the concept of mercy, as well as quotations from Pope Francis' bull Misericordiæ vultus.

The artwork is also special because it is interactive. Visitors can physically take part in the work by sitting inside the monumental letters, not as passive spectators but as an integral component of the art. To encourage collective participation in the project, Facebook and Instagram pages and a website have been created, and video recordings are taken at regular intervals, so that even those who are not in Rome will be able to see the installation. The app HUG - Tap to donate, for smartphones and tablets, will also be connected to these communication channels, to make it possible to carry out real acts of mercy for those in need. With the HUG app, users can donate to the project “La Minestra del Papa - Con 5 euro puoi donare un pasto caldo ai poveri di Roma" (The soup of the Pope - For 5 euro you can donate a hot meal to the poor of Rome), sponsored by Circolo San Pietro, serving Rome's poor since 1869. HUG - Tap to donate can be downloaded for free from Google Play and the App Store.

The installation will become the symbol of a solemn gesture of mercy at the Mass of St. Martin, celebrated by His Holiness Pope Francis in St. Peter's Basilica on 11 November, the date the installation will be removed. The original works pictured in the installation can be seen in person at the gallery of the Hungarian Academy in Rome (Palazzo Falconieri, Via Giulia, 1) from 8 to 20 November.
