TONNUZZI is a swim­ming pool for the inner city free to copy for ever­yo­ne. It con­sists of 12  con­nec­ted 500-liter rain bar­rels, nine of them fil­led with water. One of the bar­rels is fil­led with ice cubes (cola! beer! cock­tails!), ano­t­her one with gra­vel and sand (sho­vel! exca­va­tor! cast­les!), and ano­t­her one ser­ves as a bar.

The aim of TONNUZZI is not to use other­wi­se unu­sed space in a tem­pora­ry way but rather making repro­duc­tion as simp­le as pos­si­ble. TONNUZZI is not a luxu­ry good. It reminds us of child­hood baths in rain bar­rels and can be repli­ca­ted with qui­te cheap mate­ri­als (rain bar­rels, rain bar­rel con­nec­tors, hoses, water pump, …).
