    People tend to look away from topics like violence against women, and organisations that help women often struggle to reach a wide audience. The installation used the street and the tarmac to send various messages, in a way impossible to miss. Le Corbusier was chosen because it has presence and elegance, which are hard to find together in stencil typefaces. The messages included an emergency contact number, and messages for men: “solidarity towards women is what makes you a man”. The installation was realized for a Visual Communication project at the Free University of Bolzano, under the supervision of Prof. Giorgio Camuffo.
