Drive Tour is the photographic evolution of two interdisciplinary projects, My house is a Le Corbusier and Drive. Like the other two it is an itinerant work, which combines architecture, design, travel and landscape: a constellation of paths that leads the artist to move from his native village in Sardinia, towards the main Italian cities and European. On the street he is aboard a Fiat 127 Special called "Camaleonte" designed by Chironi himself because of his ability to change color according to the places where he stops and following the chromatic combinations typical of the architectures in which the artist lives and works. out of twelve countries in the world. 

Cristian Chironi, was born in Nuoro in 1974, lives and works between Bologna and Europe. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna Bologna. He uses different languages, making them often dialogue together.
