Giovanni Bellini's painting 'Allegoria Sacra' hangs in the Uffizi Gallery collection in Florence. The subject of this picture is enigmatic – diverse personages from Christian and classical mythology or history are gathered together on a balustraded terrace overlooking a lake or broad river. One theory widely acknowledged by experts is that Bellini was depicting Purgatory on the banks of the river Styx (the river of death) or Lethe (the river of forgetfulness), where the souls of the righteous, virtuous heathens and infants that die before christening await the supreme judgment that determines if they will be go to heaven or hell..

AES+F acknowledge that this painting always intrigued them. So when the group members started thinking about their third project, after 'Last Riot' and 'The Feast of Trimalchio', which were exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2007 and 2009, they decided that the project entitled ALLEGORIA SACRA would be part of a trilogy about the modern world (Hell – Heaven – Purgatory). The artists saw Bellini's heroes in passengers that meet by chance as they wait for flights in an international airport.
