    Teresa Piardi of Maxwell Studio worked with Wigrum in her design of a book about Palazzo Abatellis. Conceived by art and architecture writer Cloe Piccoli together with photographer Stefano Graziani, it was published by Humboldt Books:

    Palazzo Abatellis, Palermo is a contemporary narrative, an artistʼs book, a surprising journey into a place that we thought we knew. Work began at dawn one Monday morning in September as part of the project entitled The Hidden City, with lights off and museum closed, in order to move through eras and cultures, ancient stories and contemporary visions; to observe works of art, architecture, saloni, courtyards and terraces. The narrative is triggered by the encounter with this unique place – thanks to its architecture coupled with the collections and displays created by Carlo Scarpa – presented through the contemporary vision of the authors.

      Amalia, of course! Thank you very much, Akira. I should have recognized the g with the Elvis pompadour.
