AboutThe Trongate Codex. Alan Kane 2012
The Val D'Oro restaurant Glasgow has been decorated over many years by the proprietor Luigi Corvi with framed black and white copies and ephemera documenting a history of Glasgow and the generations of the Corvi family who have run the establishment.
The book is a vehicle to record and disseminate an original human local story as well as to effect and illustrate the fluid nature of cultural significance and, in an analogue historic form, mirror questions around who has ownership of culture and history more commonly associated recently with digitally powered networks and communications.
