Inside the Romanellaz secondary school, the Lumiglyphes appear and disappear on the concrete’s surface. Dispersed within the common areas, they diffuse a luminous flux that varies with the sunlight.

The Lumiglyphes blend in the mineral architecture of this building, where one learns to read and write. They echo the petroglyphs, the first Neolithic symbols of communication considered to be the premises of writing.
