About

Anotherview is an ongoing project that takes place in between interior design and video art. It transforms your home into a nomadic place, where virtual window leads to unexpected landscapes or cities to suit however you feels like. The team of Anotherview is constantly collecting new and exclusive views around the world. In a way each view tells a unique story about our time, people, society and the world. The end result of each Anotherview is a hyper realistic window that can be installed in any wall or type of room, with or without windows, that will become an integral part of your interior. Once the time of the day is set, the window view will run for continuously 24 hours according to the user’s time of the day without needing any other intervention, just like in a real window. Each Anotherview window comes with an Anotherview app and an exclusive code to easily access the device with a smartphone and to adjust the time as preferred. From the artist: No trip to Rome is complete without a visit to the Fontana di Trevi, or Trevi Fountain. Located in the Quirinale district of Rome, the Trevi Fountain is known as one of the most stunning fountains in the world. The Fountain was commissioned in 1730 by Pope Clemens XII to Nicola Salvi, a local architect who have never seen its completion in 1762 which occured 12 years after his death. Since then the Fontana di Trevi has become one of the hot spots for tourists and of course for cinematorgraphers considering that is here that took place the famous scene of the movie “La Dolce Vita”, the masterpiece of Federico Fellini. More than a Fountain it looks like a theatre stage full of actions both in the splashing of the waters and in the movement of the group of statues which represents the god Ocean on a chariot surrounded by tritons and hippocampus. A visit to the Trevi Fountain has always been a stop on every single touristic tour of the Eternal City. This means that it was almost impossible to really enjoy the fountain and the little square due to the rumbling and noisy crowd that literally fill every single space in front of and sometimes even inside the Fountain. The magnificence and the extravagant flamboyance of this Rococo Masterpiece has become more a backdrop for a selfie than a corner of the city that people can actually enjoy. This radically changed in the first part of 2020 when the Covid19 Pandemia completely throw Italy and of course Rome in a new dimension of despair and self Isolation that was never experienced before. Silence was the main sound, sometimes broken by the blaring of the ambulances and everyone was only able to look at their city out their windows or from their balconies. People were literally locked in their houses leaving the city to itself as an abandoned open air museum. When the lockdown finally ended, at the middle of May, the Romans came out from their homes just to find their city empty of tourists, the streets, the squares, the churches all back to their original essence, like they have been in a sort of deep sleep. In June also the ban on internal travels from one region to another was over and that was the moment we decided to go to Rome to film “Anotherview No 21 Trevi Fountain, a few days after lockdown”. We filmed from a private apartment with a window directly facing the fountain. What we filmed for 24h was not the usual image we have in mind of the fountain as a touristic actraction but just a stunning, marvelous piece of urban architecture that came back to their citizens as a place to live, to gather around in search of some refreshement in summer or to stare at during a night walk with your beloved ones. A Beauty to heal wounded souls. For once you can enjoy one day in the history of this masterpiece with the life of a city slowly restarting around it. Tourists will come back around these old stones soon and these images of “normality” will be just a weird memory for those who live in Rome, for those like us who created it and for you who can enjoy this piece.
