Scope and Content

The project series documents "Mappe Recinti Itinerari Territori", a rug made of eleven small tapestries hand-woven together. Pettena designed this rug for a special production for "Megalopoli" in 1989. Each of the tapestries represent four subjects: itineraries, territories, maps and enclosures. These subjects "are the means required for the definition of space inside or outside those “magic circles” that are the walls of a city, the beginning of a construction, as the rituals that are performed inside any enclosure take on a unique quality and role, different from whatever lies beyond this boundary." [1]

The project series contains a reference photograph and photo montages of the eleven small tapestries forming the rug.
