Artistic installation of video mapping, light and sound. About bombing, not forgetting and a call for freedom and peace.

A gigantic tree is sketched on the City Hall’s façade based on small, short and interrupted strokes recalling the intermittent bombing Mussolini had ordered and which terrorised the city’s population 80 years ago.

Every stroke is synaesthesiastically related, in the same perceptive act, to a subtle, individual voice, yet together they end up creating a global choir, a call for peace and freedom.
