Al di qua del giorno is a public action 16 hours long by Italian artist Vittorio Corsini. An apartment perimeter and its rooms (a kitchen, a livingroom, two bedrooms and a bathroom) were drawn on the Cathedral Square in Prato. The objects of each room were installed in the perimeter, so that once entered the rooms, visitors could experience exactly a flat atmosphere.
The apartment was open to public from 7 pm to midnight and everyone could use and live the spaces as being at home. A real dinner was prepared in the kitchen and offered to everyone. Also the surrounding buildings were part of the work: their façades were used as screens for projecting the images of their inner flats.
This work was an attempt of experiencing the work of art by taking part in a public event. [from CCA-actions]
