Scope and content:
The project series documents "Integrazioni" an installation by Pettena for the Expo Arte at the Galleria Megapoli in Bari in 1985. The installation consisted of a framed three dimensional 'picture' in which is placed two benches and a table, and perspective is added in with paint to give the impression of depth. "A picture that, for once, has a depth (so that you can enter it) is in fact a place, the place where names change, the place where natures change, the location of a shift between real and imaginary, a door opening onto a reality that is certainly imagined, but that you can pass through." [1]

The project series contains sketches and photographs of the installation, and a leaflet from the Galleria Megapoli on the exhibition and the installations presented.
