The formula bruta (or emperical formula) of a chemical species is a particular chemical formula that provides information on the number and on the chemical nature of the atoms that make up the chemical species in question and is so named because it does not indicate the way in which the atoms are linked between them.

On 7 April 1795, the gram was defined in France to be equal to “the absolute weight of a volume of pure water equal to a cube of one hundredth of a meter, and at the temperature of melting ice. For practical purposes though, a metallic reference standard was required, one thousand times more massive, the kilogram. Work was therefore commissioned to determine precisely the mass of one liter of water. In spite of the fact that the decreed definition of the gram specified water at zero Celsius degree, the scientists chose to 

redefine the standard and to perform their measurements at the temperature of highest water density, which was measured at the time as four Celsius degree (39 °F). The definition of water was born in the first analysis by the need to have a reference and a link with a element which stands at a semantic area and different chemical. A metallic element. The empirical formula is therefore a concept translated describing the slip of coincidences in antropic and not antropic traces. The project aims to collect a massive series of not declared connections where the water not explicitly turns out to be a brute engagement with the bonds of the social infrastructures and overstructures creating and high- lighting similarities and criticisms.

Anthropization means water connection, conversion of open spaces, landscapes, and natural environments, which is the formula bruta of the anthroponaturalmetropolis? 

Giulia Bruno (*1978) lives in Berlin (Germany). She is currently working on a number of art and film projects with Armin Linke in his Berlin Studio. She is also involved in a film project by the Anthropocene Observatory for the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin and in the artistic research group Confotografia, which is concerned with the Aquila territory in Italy and the effects of the interaction between humans and nature following the 2009 earthquake. She presented the film “Capital “ in several festivals including the Filmmaker Film Festival in Milano and at the Cineteca di Bologna “Visioni Italiane” in Bologna, where she won a prize.
