The most interesting work created together by the three artists is this artist's book, which collects three years of correspondence thoughts, talks and e-mail between Moona, Guylen and Chen Li on some salient points of reflection on the roots and their importance for the future. Chen Li is the art director and designer of this book. Available on request, the 64 pages catalogue-artist's book made by the three artists. In english. 

For many years the Turin civic libraries system have started, under the impulse of a far-sighted Roberto Emprin, a collaboration between art, local artists and culture by making the 18 locations of the city libraries available for cultural and artistic projects. I thank the civic library system and Roberta Zanetti for their tireless commitment in this direction, for the public and human service that they gave to all citizens over the years.

Because of the inclusive theme, many representatives of both culture and art were invited, as well as people active in the theme of enhancing local roots and other continents.

Thanks to Roberto Mastroianni, philosopher and art critic, for writing the presentation of the artist's book which is the result of this six-handed work; thanks to Gabriella Bordin and Alma Teatro for their performances, thanks to Marina Panarese from Zhisong, thanks to Carlo Gloria, artist and founder of Acca Atelier in Turin, thanks to Davide Demichelis, host of "Radici" on Italian TV channel RAI 3, and on this occasion moderator of the event, Luisa Gnavi, actress, with her poetry reading, thanks to Angela Donna and to the group of Poesia Vagabonda. The artists Guylen and Moona who flew by plane from their countries to partecipate in person with a small performance, as a third stop after the others in Canada and in Finland.

One of the most curious in the city of Turin may be the Mausoleum of Bela Rosin and its park. Located in the district of Mirafiori Sud, in the south part of the city, this building is an exact copy, in reduced scale, of the most imposing and known Pantheon in Rome. Architect Angelo Demezzi, 1886-1889. It is now a Public Exhibition venue managed by Turin City Library system. They host cultural events and art exhibitions.  Exhibition of 3 artists, curator Chen Li
