AutoGrill Monument is a sublime ambient
display of real-time highway fatalities integrated into
the popular Italian roadside restaurant AutoGrill in Novara,
Italy. Each time a highway fatality occurs on the Italian
Autostrada, an integrated alert system activates a jet of
blue liquid that shoots 20 meters high to fill the water-filled
column that pierces the roadside restaurant. Viewing of
the Memorial Cloud is available both inside AutoGrill and
from a distance of 2 KM.
AutoGrill Monument serves two purposes: 1)
To remember those who have lost their lives on Europe's
most dangerous highways. 2) To alert and possibly cause
speeding motorists to decelerate.
