Micro Farfalle Metropolitane

Farfalle Metropolitane (Metropolitan Butterflies) is an outdoor installation designed and realized for the Open House Rome event, in 2013.
Open House Rome is a one-weekend, annual event in which many buildings, notable for their architecture, and many areas, usually out of traditional tourist circuits, can be visited for free. The Open House Rome is part of the international event Open House Worldwide, held in more than 25 cities, across 4 different continents. In San Lorenzo, a neighbourhood of colours, lights in motion, one of the few in Rome, which still preserves vital memories, we tested the idea of a change of direction through a small but poetic and traditional gesture: the origami. Fold and compose, to bring back the nature in the city.
