With Follow the Shape Paolo Puddu won the Fifth edition of the contest “A work for the Castle”, curated by Angela Tecce and Claudia Borrelli, which aimed to rethink the function of the St. Elmo Castle and its connection with the surrounding areas.
Paolo Puddu succeeded in creating an original bond between the castle and the adjacent environment. The panoramic fortifications became a place to live different kind of unique sensory experiences starting from writings inspired to Naples. By using the braille writing system the artist encourages the visitors to have a tactile experience thus offering them a different perspective from the visual one.
