Quarto dei Mille

Quarto dei Mille

A large steel plate mounted on the rocky shore of Quarto to honour the 1,089 men who contributed to the process of National Unification in 1860. The real protagonist of the project is the typography: the choice of typeface, the thickness of the characters
and the play of solid and empty space create a double level of reading, both macro (the date, 1860) and micro (the 1,089 names).
