Related to the concept of Public Art, this project has been organized by ArtAround, Museo Della Fotografia Contemporanea and hosted by Biblioteca Tilane.
The main goal is to gather in several books all the representations of the city of Paderno Dugnano, given by its inhabitants. As soon all the book are published they can be borrowed in all the libraries in the North Side of Milan.

In this situation i designed a structure of the book which, beyond representing its main theme, was to force the final user to borrow the book (due to his huge size) and discover the content throughout its weird way of folding. Secondly through few holes he/she is able to install a small exhibition at his place or wherever. I'm honest, I was really into designing something that was across an object, such a book, and an event, such an photo exhibition.

The meaning of the pictures are related to the view I have of my hometown, Paderno Dugnano, an anonymous 50k inhabitants suburban town, close to Milan. I was really concerned about the urban planning which allowed and still allows to live in an unaesthetic condition of sideways. So I decided to show all the main roads which cut the city and make it something to pass through, something to see and to live sideways.
