I was at the Maxxi, Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome, which has just recently opened on Thursday and I found this intricately embroidered map of the world by Alighiero Boetti, an Italian artist. I of course loved it because of my current interest in embroidering maps.
This piece was part of an entire exhibition dedicated to maps called Mappe del Reale: Maps of the Real.
