Pettena was one of the forty artists, musicians, architects and art critics invited to the event . For his installation, "Pettena chose to hang out washing on clothes lines, with the aim of underlining the difference between the appearance of a city and the experience of living in it." .
The project series contains photographs of the installation at the Piazza del Duomo, in Como, sketches of the installation, and a project description in English and Italian.
