Chi ha paura del lupo cattivo?
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf? A park is a happy and mysterious place. The ideal spot for a surprising fairytale path, or rather for a story about the hazards of illusion.
Taking advantage of the framework provided by the XVII-XIX century landscaping wonder of Porta Venezia Gardens in Milano we design an interactive light installation in six episodes. Step by step visitors will discover narrative elements loosely inspired to the story of Little Red Riding Hood.
The path ends in front of the pond where reflected on water the storytellers speak from the perspective of their individual competence. The semiologist, the architect, the fashion designer, the artist – all prominent experts of the fairy-tale world.
Placing illusion against reality the overall tone is poetic and ironic.
