Scope and content:
The project series documents "Stanza", an installation presented in the exhibition "Beneaugurando" at the Galleria Megapoli, in Milan in 1987. The installation consists of a tent made of white gauze built in the gallery. "Only the openings made at the four corners, at the junctions of the four walls, permitted entry into a quadrangular space with a ceiling in the form of a low pyramid, where there was continuity between the walls and ceiling as in a cave." [1] This installation was also presented in the exhibition "Sistemi binari 1" at the Galleria Neon Campobase, in Bologna in 2008.

The project series contains a sketch for the installation and promotional material from the Galleria Megapoli about the installation, including a press release and a promotional card.
