Un Sedicesimo 28 is Inferno seen through the eyes of Emiliano Ponzi: nine illustrated Circles portray a contemporary portrait of Hades where gluttons are trapped in a huge ice lolly, misers wear a suit and tie and traitors do deals from their cars. The unmistakable mark of Emiliano Ponzi paints an original picture of the Underworld with the bright colours and graphics typical of his work.
