An extremely ugly large reinforced concrete wall 6 metres high and 20 metres long in one of Barga’s prime public parks just below the medieval walled historic centre of the city.
The project is to make this eye sore invisible as much as possible so that it blends into the natural scenery of the wooded park.
A 120 square metres surface that will have to be treated, painted or covered so that tonally it becomes less visible.
Camouflage or a design which breaks up the flat surface will be necessary.

The invisible wall in Barga (english)
Il muro invisibile a Barga
Il progetto è in realtà molto semplice
Un grande muro in cemento armato molto brutto 6 metri di altezza e 20 metri di lunghezza in uno dei parchi pubblici appena sotto il centro storico di Barga.
Il progetto è quello di rendere, per quanto possibile, questo brutto muro, invisibile in modo che si fonda con il paesaggio naturale del parco alberato.
Una superficie di 120 metri quadrati deve essere trattata, verniciata o coperta così, tonalmente, diventa meno visibile.
Camouflage o un design sarà necessario per rompe la superficie piana.

Military camouflage works by using disruptive patterns, which involve broken-up patterns and contrasting colourings, to make it harder for the human eye to recognise edges or shapes of the object being disguised. It is modelled after animal patterns and coloured to match the region of use
The goal of military camouflage is crypsis, the ability to blend into the background, or mimicry, the ability to make one thing look like something else
Some forms of camouflage have elements of scale invariance, designed to disrupt outlines at different distances, typically digital camouflage patterns made of pixels.
No single camouflage pattern is effective in all terrains. The effectiveness of a pattern depends on contrast as well as colour tones. Strong contrasts which disrupt outlines are better suited for environments such as forests where the play of light and shade is prominent, while low contrasts are better suited to open terrain with little shading structure
Contemporary artistic movements such as cubism, vorticism and impressionism also influenced the development of camouflage as they dealt with disrupting outlines, abstraction and colour theory
M1929 Telo mimetico (Italian: camouflage cloth) was a military camouflage pattern used by the Italian Army for shelter-halves (telo tenda) and later for uniforms for much of the 20th century. Being first issued in 1929 and only fully discontinued in the early 1990s, it has the distinction of being the first printed camouflage pattern for general issue, and the camouflage pattern in longest continuous use in the world.
