Description from Massimo Iosa Ghini:

We have a way of designing and making things that comes from thousands of years of history. This idea of inheritance is tied to the tradition, namely the tower. I asked myself: what do we inherit? Ourselves, our cities, the way we live in these cities. One of the most specific typologies of our culture is the tower of the nobles, which becomes civic: an Italian project, because I wanted to work on a very strong feature, part of our identity. The tower is a way to build in blocks, typical of the Latin world, while openings lit with LEDs convey the idea of technology.
