Chili Moon Town is a utopian floating city of dreams that knows no boundaries. It is born as a free city without frontiers. It doesn’t make its inhabitants migrate but it migrates itself. It is a metropolis with futuristic hand made skyscrapers. Chili Moon Town Tour is an archetype of the fable without a moral, like a child’s tree house: a magical hideout for private experiences.
