Two towers along the Via Emilia: a travertine monolith and a steel monolith. The two bodies slightly touch each other, both resting on top of a rarefied instantiation: a commercial slab with slender 6 m high columns, drawing an arcade around the glazed walls on four homologous sides. Towards the countryside the towers transmute into a deployment of green terraces, with irregular geometry, iridescent metal and glass. The range of the Apennines unfolds before it.
