Ai Pioppi for Smith Journal

Last March I shot a story on Bruno Zaghis and his mesmerizing amusement park for Smith Journal. This  place is quite special, as a matter of fact I was there again, just a few days ago, with some friends to have lunch and play.

“A few years after Bruno Zaghis started his restaurant in rural italy, he had the idea of building a small playground to attract customers. things ended up getting a little out of hand.”

“Cobbled together from recycled objects and brightly coloured iron, Zaghis’s park gives the impression of a giant Meccano set. Some of the attractions are simple: a trampoline made out of knotted bits of rubber, a giant hamster wheel, a seesaw. But others are fantastically ambitious.”

The story is by Adrian Craddock and Livia Albeck-Ripka, below you can see the tearsheets and some outtakes. Many thank to Adrian and Maurizio. Also, make sure you watch the beautiful movie produced by Fabrica, at this link.
