Lanterna per Lucciole/Lantern for fireflies


A small scale Utopia
Utopia is possible if it is thought of on a small and local scale.

This is a project without buyers or lenders, not an architectural project in the strict sense.
At present the market of prostitution is encoded in this manner within Italian suburbs, in degrading conditions, both for those involved first hand and those who are involved indirectly, the state of affairs leaves room for improvement and is definitely not functional.
With the inclusion in the public space of a mobile device made ​​of materials that are readily available and cost efficient a substantial impact. This would positively influence the feeling of abandonment of those who live on the road; by changing the overall appearance of the boulevard, in favor of the residents, and at the same time of the customer. By underlining the presence of prostitutes by giving them their own space, despite being both mobile and temporary, their existence is recognized, and their rights and roles as human beings are brought into question.
