A 3D PRINTED REPRODUCTION OF AMATRICE, THE TOWN DEVASTATED BY THE EARTHQUAKE

During the last Maker Faire Rome, a detailed reproduction of the city of Amatrice has been presented. The little Italian town has been devastated by the earthquake on 24th August 2016 and, with the purpose of supporting the evacuated citizens, DWS together with Alessandro Ranellucci and the designer Michele Calvano have joined to realize the three-dimensional map of the ancient historical centre.

The artwork is a CAD drawing elaborated on the imagines captured before the earthquake and 3D printed, with dimensions of 2 x 4 meters. DWS has printed the blocks with houses and buildings with XFAB, the stereolitoghraphy 3D printer which solidifies liquid material through a laser source. It is a wish for a prompt reconstruction, in order to maintain the identity and the original aspect of the town.
