SEETIES In 2010, Erich Fisher used open data to create these maps. Tourist destinations, cities and places, change every year and it would be interesting to compare this visual research with an updated version.

PRATO One month before the reopening of the Centro Pecci, the first centre dedicated to contemporary art in Italy, it is its architect to tell us three important things about this place, meant as a space for all contemporary arts but above all as a public space. In fact, architect Maurice Nio addresses us – citizens of Prato, Tuscany, Italy, Europe, World: in this short video, he launches three messages, including a very curious invitation… :)
