Limno: 76 Pounds and XVI Coins
Limno is a way of observing, it is a research group that inquires into the various themes of nature through meetings, videos and by rethinking places.
Since 2010 it has produced minimal actions, both on and within the landscape, together with people who have transformed their relationship with the environment into a passion or work. At first it fixed its attention on water and put into touch apparently quite different disciplines – biology, philosophy, architecture, contemporary art – with the aim of showing the similarities between scientific knowledge and art research. In 2011 the themes of gardens, landscape and nature were studied in a series of meetings in a private apartment. The latest centre of attention is a study – a publishing project – of the Forte Marghera in Venice. The publication, as all the other emersioni (highlights), is the result of cooperation, walks, skype conferences, close examinations.
and XVI Coins
Budget for the fortification of the area of Marghera by the Lordship of Treviso, for the defence against La Serenissima. The works of fortification never took place since Forte Marghera was not built neither by Treviso nor by Venice. It was the work of Austrian and French invaders, hence for a short period it took the name of Forte Haynau.*
Julius Jacob von Haynau, Austrian General, Kassel 14 October 1786 – Wien 14 March 1853
