Here lies one whose name was writ in water (on the grave of John Keats at Acatolic Cemetery in Rome)

We’re very proud we got an honorable mention for this project because it was our proposal for the Memorial Park in San Giuliano di Puglia where a dramatic earthquake happened in 2002. Our investigation has avoided nostalgia for the tragic event focusing instead on the idea of a monument as an optimistic vision of life.
