The Banco D’Albania was conceptualized as a means to destabilize received media images of Albanians in Italy, which were screened on a sculptural group of television-sets shrouded by a piece of coarse, sack-like canvas, that itself both obscures the media images and ironically recalls the power of the media in alluring Albanians (emigrants) to Italy.
