Reliqvia, or “what remains” from its Latin derivative, pays homage to a great guardian of the relics of Christ’s Passion: the Church of the Croix in Senigallia, a small Italian coastal town in the Marche region. From its Renaissance-style facade emanate the first fresh notes of black currant mixed with sweet and bitter orange, topped by four pilasters. When crossing the threshold of this sacred place, the mystical smell of nutmeg enters, mixed with the woody scent of its walls. Finally, incense in all its power embalms even the coffered ceiling of this place dedicated to the daily adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. The Relic, with its golden flask reminiscent of the wooden walls of the church decorated with baroque reliefs, is the concrete testimony of an existence above us: the last trace of the Messiah’s passage on Earth. The priceless custody of sacred objects reminds us that time is precious and at risk of being consumed in the whirlwind of life. A mystical trail like the nail of the Passion.
