Il mio cuore è vuoto come uno specchio (My Heart is a Void, the Void is a Mirror) is the story of the project by Gian Maria Tosatti, an artist whose research has always been rooted in the territory, in which he intervenes with site-specific environmental installations.

In each city a work was born, treated as an episode of an ideal visual novel, which the artist returns in this book in the form of a diary in which he collects visions, suggestions, prophecies and reality, and highlights the creative process of he.
The volume is accompanied by a large iconographic apparatus and by critical essays by Stefano Chiodi, Ludovico Pratesi, Yulia Kleiman, Benedetta Carpi de Resmini, Azu Nwagbogu, Sara de Beer, Alessandra Troncone, Francesca Guerisoli and Stefano Raimondi which retrace each stage of the cycle. my heart is empty like a mirror.
