An extensive design (190m long and 7m wide) covers entirely the central part of the asphalt pavement of the Ponte della Musica Armando Tovajoli and becomes the unifying element which gives a new connotation to the space. The gigantic decorative pattern contains in itself all that is necessary to live the collective dimension of the public space. It is a sort of “carpet” decorated with geometric drawings which contain game boards, where different games can be played, and there are specific spaces which can be used for artistic performances during the event.

An innovative product, specially modified for the occasion, has been used to realize the project. It is a photocatalytic white paint which under the direct action of the UV ray modifies the polluting substances reducing them to harmless inert substances.
