FREE WI-FI (Sa Coveccada) 2015, is a setting of a black and white image of one of the oldest architecture in Italy, the dolmen Sa Coveccada, mounted as wallpaper on a freestanding wooden structure.The dolmen Sa Coveccada is located in Mores, Sassari in Sardinia and «Sa Coveccada» means «what is covered» in Sardinian dialect. At the center of the photographic reproduction of the prehistoric building, a red neon sign says FREEWI-FI. The coexistence of these two realities – one coming from a very distant past and the other that is strongly tied to our contemporary world – generates a visu- al paradox, not too different from that of some illustrations of the magazine «NewYorker». But the work does not stop there, actually allows free internet access in the space surrounding the work. This way Riccardo Previdi creates an environment in the environment and breaks down the architectural and cultural barriers of the museums space and it defines a new one that coexists with the existing one.
