Rediscovering the Piazza Pedrazzini Fountain

Locarno 2023

Il trucco a Cenerentola

Opera effimera di nebbia naturale


Minimalist make-up work that highlights the beauty and extravagance of the Pedrazzini fountain and its square. A constantly moving cloud, which not only refreshes the area, but also embraces and breathes life into the monument. We are to the Pedrazzini fountain as the fairy godmother is to Cinderella.


The natural mist is produced exclusively by fresh drinking water supplied directly from the aquaduct.
The installation was realised for the City of Locarno.


July-August 2023
The enchantment is on from 9 a.m. to midnight.
