2013-ongoing. Concrete. 5 thousand pieces approx. 


1:100,000 scale reproduction of the Alps

Every little mountain realized in cement replicate in scale the elevation of every mountain summit, from the highest and pointed to the more modest and flat-topped hills. The shapes of the small sculptures are fictional, approaching the representation of the mountain ranges of old maps or medieval paintings. In a whole it wants to be first and foremost a imaginary catalog, a puzzle impossible to solve, rather than a plausible and meticulous map.

The work, in constant flux, will be subject to some workshops that will take place before and during the opening of the exhibition.
