New Book Geografia del Tempo
In 2020 Igor Ponti collaborated with a Foundation for the disabled, Fondazione Diamante, to document a district of the City of Lugano where one of the Foundation's laboratories is located. The result is a new publication that documents the changes in the micro-territory of an urban neighborhood. Texts by Boas Erez, Ludovica Molo, and Lorenzo Erroi.
New publication archi magazine
A series of images, created in collaboration with the architect Stefano Moor, has been published in the sixth issue of the Swiss architecture magazine Archi.
One image from the series South of no North is featured in a new group photo book edited by Artphilein Editions. Each image chosen for this publication by the artists interviewed makes up a mosaic, the unifying link of which is given by the common atmosphere of suspended time, of transience, of fading.

The talk will be moderated by the critic Elisa Rusca and the artist's Aline d'Aauria, Gian Paolo Minelli and Salvatore Vitale will also be present.
