New square in Umbria
About This Project
A new square dedicated to artist Nino Caruso was built nearby Todi, replacing an old gas station. The artist was deeply tied to Umbria and to Todi particularly, where he created most of his artworks. Some elastic formliners were obtained casting two-component Pur-Elastomer liquid rubber onto the original ceramic tiles created by the artist. Once demolded, the liners were glued inside the formworks, carving the design directly into the concrete. The new square was built thanks to the local administration, as a sign of gratitude to the artist.
