Italian Limes

Theatro Circo

Italian Limes is a five-year-long research project by Studio Folder to survey the variations of Italy’s land borders along the watershed that separates the drainage basins of Northern and Southern Europe. Running mostly at high altitudes, it crosses snowfields and perennial glaciers – all of which are now melting as a result of anthropogenic climate change. As the watershed shifts so does the border, diverging from its representation on official maps.
