To meet the instructional time was necessary to direct the project on an existing form that uphold the intervention mosaic, for which he was chosen a cylindrical mosaic (PVC pipe covered it, placed vertically, the column appears as a large high over 5 meters, diameter 70 cm).
Among the proposals chart - pictorial of the students was chosen, along with the sponsors, the sketch of Federica di Crescenzio representing two large dragons, red one, the other green, which evokes the name of the residential plexus. Particularly through the efforts of Roberta Grasso, Francesca Gazzotti, Elena Minascurta, Luca Tarozzi, the work has been accomplished in the summer - autumn 2010 (the other students of the course are Serena Cappelli, Bartosz Kesko, Kamal Makar, Marisa Marchi, Silvia Naddeo, Elena Saraceni).
