In 1919, Isola Comacina was inherited by King Albert I of Belgium and subsequently, a year later, returned to the Italians. Today, the island hosts a joint residency programme for artists in each of the three summer houses there designed by the modernist architect Pietro Lingeri. In 2016, Kasper Andreasen was one of the artists who stayed on the island for a period of three weeks. The publication brings together an extensive diary which focuses on the architectural, touristic, and ephemeral aspects of the island, accompanied by drawings, photographs, and a short film. Designed by Jonas Temmerman (6’56”).
