Featured artists include Michelangelo Pistoletto, Daniel Buren, Giulio Paolini, Kendell Geers, Anish Kapoor, Chen Zhen, Carlos Garaicoa, Nedko Solakov, Cristina Iglesias, Louise Bourgeois, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Pascale Marthine Tayou and Hiroshi Sugimoto. With texts by Marcello Fois, Philip Larratt-Smith and the Pallanti, and accompanied by colourful illustrations by Federico Maggioni.
