Curated by Maria Rosa Sossai , Istanbul City Hills looks like a room completely covered with fragments of glass, sublime and tragic vision of the change in the city of the Bosphorus , in the throes of an unprecedented development , where the glass element is extremely present, crushed , stacked, split , to act as a counterpoint to an old city ” rising ” at a dizzying rate .
