Work commissioned by the City of Bergamo

Piazza Pontida, Bergamo 2003

Fountain of hot water

The work has the simple, functional forms of a fountain, with the particularity that the water emerges at different temperatures, depending on the season. A thermostat system makes the water cool in the summer and hot in the winter, and in this way it also alters the temperature of the stones with which the fountain is built.

Following the climate cycle of the seasons, the fountain becomes an appealing place for the townspeople during all periods of the year.
