Margherita Paoletti represented a personified and multifaceted city for the urban art project “Guardami, io sono Mantova”, which is a forward-looking visual map of the place, edited by Caravan SetUp, where the participating artists worked on Mantova, on its origins, views and Renaissance architecture. For the entire month of August 2020 the artists have been the protagonists of huge billboards, through digital artworks reported on advertising posters, representing each one a unique vision of the city and its history.


“Mantova distesa” and “Manto” are lyric personifications of a city and its symbols, enclosing architecture, art and nature.



MARGHERITA PAOLETTI, draft for "Guardami, io sono Mantova"


Mantova lays down on the water, where its walls and its nature are reflected since ancient times. In its buildings Mantova hides the signs of great artists, treasures of another era, secretly hidden between the walls of magnificent palaces. Mantova is lying on the water looking at herself, while her reflection shows something different. Her fragile and vulnerable body is made up of leaves, plants and flowers. Nature has restart to live there again.

MARGHERITA PAOLETTI, draft for "Guardami, io sono Mantova"


Manto encompasses in its shape an interplay of majestic buildings and wilderness. Free birds fly through the sky spots, taking their flight from the roofs and the trees living in that body. The silently flowing water gives birth to a flower with exotic and distant origins: the lotus. Manto, with its big shoulders, bearer of endemic wisdom, reveals its precious treasures, the generator earth and water.
