Red and white are the colours of Fedrigoni’s stationery.
But red and white are also the colours of the Japanese flag. That’s why they become a support for remembering its recent tragedy. The narration begins with the transparency effect of the envelope, which allows to formulate a cry for help in a modern message in a bottle.

But there’s hope: two swallow birds are flying over the word “japan”, written with the Fluidum Font by Novarese.
