Design firm Caret Studio has installed white, painted squares on the stone cobbles of Piazza Giotto in Vicchio to show people how to keep a safe distance. As lockdown measures are slowly eased throughout the country (and the world), it’s still important for people to maintain social distancing in order to prevent a second wave of the virus’ spread. Since more people are starting to leave their homes for the first time in months (other than necessary trips), the installation is a subtle way to remind people to stay safe.
Caret Studio is calling the temporary installation “StoDistante” (“I’m keeping my distance”).
Each white square is placed 1.8 meters (about six feet) away from each other, complying with social distancing guidelines for Italy. People can easily stand on each square and safely socialize with each other without all the guesswork.
