Day 3   Friday, 15 August 2014.     the well-tempered day: It was 6 in the afternoon and we all sat at the stairs of Museo civico Pallazo Chiericati using it as an amphitheater for the day presentation of the 8 groups. A little over-heated, a little bit tired, a little bit anxious, each […]

Day 2 Thursday, 14 August 2014.   They say that the strongest muscle of the body is the one we are sitting on. Sitting on a chair is an un-natural position where the body has to balance in awkward ways. For centuries it has been a challenge for designers to create a really good ergonomic […]
