The Arsenale exhibition for the Architecture Biennale 2014 presented a scan of Italy, established by 82 films, 41 architectural projects, and a merger of architecture with la biennale's dance, music, theatre, and film sections.

Each project in Monditalia concerned unique and specific conditions, together forming a comprehensive portrait of the host country.

The exhibition extends throughout the expansive interior of the Corderie, a structure within the Arsenale complex that mirrors the long and slender shape of Italy. The original spacious hall, measuring 316 meters in length, is bisected by a printed curtain with a representation of the Tabula Peutingeriana map, creating two distinct corridors.
