Artist Edoardo Tresoldi placed 46 columns, the tallest of them eight meters high, throughout Via Giunchi in Reggio Calabria to create a permanent installation called Opera. Each column consists of an open lattice structure and is illuminated from below by spotlights.
The columns were placed to enhance and frame views across the Strait of Messina, but do not follow the positioning of existing paths with the park.
Opera opened to the public on 12 September along with a sound installation created by Italian musician and composer Teho Teardonarrated that aims to articulate different parts of the day.
