LIGHT SIGNS FOR SMALL TOWN
The lights signs are realized in small peripheral towns and exhibited during their most important local festivals, including concerts, events and meetings.
Every light sign is a unique piece, which is conceived and produced in collaboration with local artisans, in order to celebrate and decorate the village during these special days.

The light sign was donated to local people and is kept by the “Pro Loco” of Frassineto Po, which is the association in charge of promoting local culture and tourism. The light sign was exhibited on the occasion of “Sagra del Peperone” , on the 26th August 2011.
2010. Neon. Light bulbs, wood, steel.
“Italia61” is the reconstruction of the logo of the international expo (Esposizione internazionale del lavoro) held in Turin on the occasion of the celebrations of the centenary of the unification of Italy in 1961. The inscription, originally located at the entrance of the Expo site, was rebuilt by hand as a light-up sign and suspended at the entrance to the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo.
2011-2012. Potluck open to the public. Kitchen and entrance ASU Art Museum, Tempe, Arizona; Combine Studios Kitchen, Phoenix, Arizona. With: Béatrice Bailet and the staff of the ASU Art Museum
Every second Friday a potluck open to both museum staff and the public is held in the lobby of the Arizona State University Art Museum in Tempe. Everyone is invited to cook something and share it. The kitchen of the museum has developed into a little culinary laboratory where different communities and cultures that inhabit the vast metropolitan area of Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale and Mesa can come together.
2013. Banners. Light signs. Prints on paper, telescopic sticks, Christmas lights, desk lamps.
As on old army parade, or a modern sport parade, the six small towns participing in the project “La Bilioteca Fantastica” were represented in six banners, mixing old book illustations about science-fiction with the names of the towns. They were shown the first time in Venice, as ambassadors of these places, in a collateral event of the Biennale opening. A sort of unexpected temporary Sulcis pavilion.
The banners were damaged seriously during the event because of an sudden heavy shower, and their remains were transformed in special suspended lamps, to light up the exhibition “La Biblioteca Fantastica” at MAN, Nuoro.
