In order to point the artistic pieces of the Alumia project, I proposed the use of numbered plates placed on the pavement. These signs, materialized in polished stainless steel, assume a mirrored expression which, in this way, merge with a surrounding of both the built heritage and the artistic installations. At the same time, negative-cut infographics, in a game between full and empty, allow light and shadow effects and their reading on more than one plane.
