L'Acqua e' di tutti - Water Belongs To Everybody

"L’acqua è di tutti" (Water Belongs To Everybody) is an interactive installation that merge plastic art, music and reuse philosophy. It's a project by Manolo Benvenuti, Claudio Ballestracci e Giulio Accettullimusiche originali di Marco Mantovani. Supported by Rimini (Italy) and Périgueux (France) municipalities, it develops the “water” guide theme as a social and relational good. The Bottle’s facing is made with 6.000 reclaimed plastic bottles, mostly mould by the school children and associations who attended specific workshops in Périgueux. The Bottle acts as a concert hall to four Sound Fountains, perfectly working artifacts that hide a musical core, though: they are strings indeed, impatient for playing their score. When you get close to the nozzles, they stop the water flows and start the musical ones. The performance is complete as long as you play all four of the Fountains, and it seems as if you’re calling a string quartet up from the water
