Marseille Drive is an interdisciplinary, itinerant and at the same time site-specific project that combines architecture, urban planning, design, sound art and social relations. The artist Cristian Chironi starts with his Fiat 127, called "Camaleonte" for its ability to change color according to the chromatic combinations typical of Le Corbusier's architecture. Starting from the legacy of the modernist architect and from narratives linked to the artist's village of origin (Orani, NU), this journey retraces the network of relationships that Le Corbusier has intertwined with different cities and explores the notion of "living" in a moment of growing precariousness and mobility, questioning the distinction between nomadic life and sedentary life.
