The two artists will live day and night under public observation (all passers-by will be able to see them) and filmed with web cam and live on Instagram, but without basic necessities. It will be the spectators to help them feed themselves, get dressed, sleep according to the dictates of eco-sustainability. Among others, in the program, the performance of Luca Scarlini who will tell Prato and its industrial tradition with a narration within some companies interpreting their history and tradition and the concert of Naomi Berrill in a cello duet and the water purification plant (at GIDA).
