Notes for Hallways pretending to be Elevators / Appunti per Corridoi che si fingono Ascensori is a publication (Italian/English) printed in two colors Risograph, which gather together the textual components of the homonymous piece with specific conceived images and design by Riccardo Benassi.

"In fact he was carried away by that mania of the storyteller, who never knows which stories are more beautiful - the ones that really happened and the evocation of which recalls a whole flow of hours past, of petty emotions, boredom, happiness, insecurity, vanity and self-disgust - or those which are invented, and in which he cuts out a main pattern, and everything seems easy, then begins to vary it as he realizes more and more that he is describing again things that had happened or been understood in lived reality."

The Baron in the Trees, Italo Calvino - 1957
