The ''100 Piazze'', project designed by Fabio Novembre, is composed by eight silver-plated brass trays reproducing the layouts and facades of several italian places. The designer works on the theme of recollection and collective imagination. Fabio Novembre doesn't cite, he invents. Even in this project, from love of and in tribute to italian architectural grandeur comes, as a divertissement, an invention. Reduced in scale, the architecture of Italy's most beautiful places becomes a centerpiece and the centerpiece looks like a real architectural mockup. A trophy, midway between kitsch and nostalgia. Recollections of Rome and piazza della Scala, Turin and piazza San Carlo, Lucca and piazza dell'Anfiteatro, Milan and piazza della Scala, of Florence and even the smaller, less-known Palmanova and Venaria Reale...
