"The project reinterprets the area of Cantù through one of its most important traditions, the art of lace. The city becomes an ideal Tombolo, in which the various urban containers are points of attraction conceived as "existing Gügitts". The project uses them to create an ideal lace made of relationships and events, triggering new social and cultural dynamics to reactivate the city center also from an economic and commercial point of view."
