Barbara Casavecchia, ed.
Foreword by Anna Zegna, introduction by Andrea Zegna, conversation between Liliana Moro, Barbara Casavecchia and Vincenzo de Bellis

The book encloses a rich documentation on the design, construction and installation of 29,88 KMQ, a permanent work created by Liliana Moro for the seventh edition of “All’Aperto” (Outdoors), the public art project organized by the Fondazione Zegna and curated by Andrea Zegna and Barbara Casavecchia in Trivero, in the Piemonte countryside. The title refers to the town’s municipal area, where the artist worked on two locations. For the traffic circle of Piazza della Repubblica, Moro created a pentagonal info point with a LED display, crowned with a bright yellow streetlight, which after dark becomes an oversize magic lantern. Inside the Pro Loco offices, she installed a large three-dimensional map, where her own voice brings the visitors to the discovery of each artwork of “All’Aperto”, like in an old coin-operated audio guide. “I think of it as the completion of the whole 29,88 KMQ project: it represents the idea of giving information and spurring the curiosity of a varied public who through my words, may feel that art can communicate and interact on many levels”, explains Moro. The book includes a preface by Anna Zegna, an extensive introduction by Andrea Zegna and a sweeping conversation between Liliana Moro, Barbara Casavecchia and Vincenzo de Bellis, co-director of Peep-Hole, Milan, focused on the relationship between artist, viewer and engagement with the public sphere, which runs through the entire production of this artist. The volume also contains a documentary section on all the public projects and works created by Liliana Moro from 1988 onwards.
