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, …).
