The images of the “Surreal Cities” are part of a “provocative campaign by WWF Italy abut the possible effects of climate change” (Corriere della Sera.it).

It is not about a “scientific scenario”, but it is of course an occasion to “meditate on the upset of […] places” we know and love (wwf.it).

In Venice, Piazza San Marco (Saint Mark’s Square) appears “submerged” and “with white-bears swimming under the gondolas”. In Milan, a couple of giraffes walk in Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral Square). A group of penguins stays in front of the Torre pendente di Pisa (Leaning Tower of Pisa) and the Colosseum is the background of elephants traversing a savanna (Corriere della Sera.it).

The initiative has been launched on the occasion of the 2015 United Nations Conference on Climate Change, COP21, in Paris.

The graphic realisation of the “Surreal Cities is by Cinzia Macis”, who is a “set and graphic designer”. Furthermore, the “cartoonist Giacomo Cardelli”is author of two cartoons – part of the same campaign – about “the future we risk to give to next generations” (ibidem).

You can see the images on wwf.it or Corriere della Sera.it.
