A transformation of a food ingredient into a geometric space.
An aesthetic tale on the production process of the traditional balsamic vinegar from Modena. A creation of a three-dimensional structure. Chestnut, cherry, ash, acacia, oak, steel, wax, glass and porcelain. A collaboration between several excellencies coming from the very same land. An expression of an endless time within a spatial complexity. An infinite search towards a collective coherence. A superposition of a roman centuriazione, an estense roof and a renaissance court. A contemporary quest.
