A publisher or a client who values ​​the idea and intends to promote it. So far I have contacted several companies in Italy and abroad. All I have asked for an estimate of five thousand euro per thousand copies with certain technical characteristics of a good standard. I have no money and I will not ask for fees to artists: the book is not a catalog. If there is any entity, municipality or institution that wants to work, I’m well prepared to consider the proposal.

120 works interspersed with the text consists of 365 short sentences as a title.
Only one work per author including card / artist like the site, which will occupy an entire façade and measure 21x21 cm.

Requesting the book to me when it is available. I'm going to send it by post as a bend of books.
If I proceed independently and have no contribution, I send it to all the artists participating in it cost me a little. 'could possibly be considered a minimum contribution to the expenses.

28 Will the book be on sale?
It is not in my intention because a product of this type is not considered by the market. Usually the art books are purchased directly from the exhibitors participating. Esteemed gallerists are already doing that so well ...

Everyone can do his part to place it wherever you think it should be consulted: libraries, art clubs, cultural associations, friends...

Refers to the length of the sentences of the text like a short title, and any slogan that goes around in the daily newspapers, advertising, quotes, sms...

It is a word game that refers to the idea to have no title that authorize me to play with the titles that act as the text for the book, since I'm not famous.
Probably if I were famous I would be considered by many as a great genius by the mere fact of being known and only few will be actually interested in the project.

32. How and when was this project born?
In August 2010 when I was kindly dismissed by different publishers after sending them my works. I looked for artists on line, and wrote each one of them a simple but detailed e-mail: thus I contacted around three thousand people. Many of them joined the project and gave me precious advice. One year after the website was born.

33. What's this project's purpose?
This work is aimed at proving that you can do art with few short sentences, involving free open-minded artists, who don't want to work under restraints and money blackmail. We want to create an open lab as a tribute to free art without tricks, manipulations and pretence. tra5e10cm is a pretext to put into play artists who share a common intent and can use this mean to make people know themselves, broadcast their art and contact anybody who takes part.

34. Who translated these FAQ?
These translations are frequently updated thanks to any volunteer who proves himself able. Whoever masters a language and wants to contribute, please write me and I'll be happy to welcome your proposal.

35. Do you have a blog?
Not yet. We do have “teatri assortiti” on blog, which shows my last years of theatrical work. I find a blog as a collective opinion - sharing too demanding, if we don't want to get lost in endless reflections. I always keep directly in touch with each artist involved.

36. How can I join the comments' section?
Write we per e-mail. I add the sentences dealing with the project – those often born by chance, no matter if positive or negative – after asking for the author's permission. I try to use only the author's forename, exceptions must be well justified.

37. Is this project on facebook?
I didn't published anything on facebook, it would cost me too much effort, although many artists did recommend the website. Anybody who wants to do it is welcome!

38. How can I broadcast the website?
Any way you want. If you do it on the internet, please write me the references.

39. Will there be an eBook?
I'm thinking about it. I've found a publisher who's available to host the project on line. If this book is going to remain a dream out of reach, this could be a good alternative.

40. Who makes me do it?
The will to discover how different people can understand the sentences in a text. I'm interested in how an intrinsic open thought can chance into its multiple possibilities.
An endless love for art.
The desire to remember my father, who used to paint in the night and whenever possible, hanging in the balance between his natural interior being pushing him towards art and his ordinary life that forced him to be someone he didn't dream to be.
tra5e10cm has been welcomed by many artists who find the project original, spontaneous and generous. Thanks to You All this idea didn't remain just a dream, even though it conserves its purest taste.
