The castle of enchanted books

Created for Comune di Gazoldo degli Ippoliti

Created for the Museum of Modern Art (MAM) of Gazoldo degli Ippoliti and its adjacent Civic Library, the project consists of building a proper – cardboard – castle with merlons and gates, having at its centre a bookcase with a range of special books. Worshops on making tactile, “feeling” and “talking” books – as well as the base structure designed by the artists of Segni d’infanzia – allow children to add their own marks and handcraft their own books with more recycled cardboard. This turns the castle into a secret corner, a magical location where you can choose a book and simply lie down and read.
