The distance between the Tunisian coast and the island of Lampedusa is shorter than the distance between the Italian coast and the island. In the first case, the distance is in fact 133 km; in the second, 224 km.
Passi [Steps], consisting of two bars of mirror-polished bronze sized 68x10x10 cm; the end of one bar will bear the engraving x 195,588, and the other x 329,411: by multiplying the number engraved on each bar by the bar size, corresponding to the artist’s step, we obtain the distances between Lampedusa and the Tunisian coast, and between the island and the Italian coast, the bars acting almost like two milestones, two signals.
