The artwork has enhanced the final area of the Southern Pier of San Benedetto del Tronto by covering some of the concrete breakwater blocks with gold/ocher fabric. The installation LOST TREASURES and its “precious” color of the material aim at emphasizing the importance of the pier for the city.

The “lost treasures”, in contrast to the collective imagination, in this case do not feature something precious hidden at the bottom of the sea. In fact they represent those common items that are often unnoticed within the pier, but they are indeed fundamental for a seaside town.
