On the top of a column of the Temple of Apollo in Syracuse, Italy, a red ant stayed for a few days. Apollo's Ant (aka by [bye] Discarica Culturale) has been used as the signature of the Discarica Culturale on the city of Syracuse and as a way to involve city's great heritage of antiquity using a simple sign. Apollo's Ant has parallels with the lucertola vermexiana, a gecko carved in stone inserted in the cornice of the municipal building of Syracuse. This was the signature of the architect Vermexio.
Design by Sebastiano Orazio Campione
Antonio Maria Privitera on behalf of Discarica Culturale
