THE INVISIBLE PIACENZA
– in homage to Italo Calvino-
Is the story of a young traveller who could hardly make it to Piacenza in 2021. Half historian, part-time archaeologist, full-time visionary designer, she uses available old and new documents, to reconstruct in her mind, an imagined Piacenza, both fictive and real. She projects herself into a rather ideal future, where Nature has retrieved its primordial presence and where new connections and expanses of open public realms have been envisioned between the old city and the river, past the old walls, past obstructive infrastructure, past illusory boundaries.
