Turbomondi imagines suspended worlds inhabited by constantly evolving creatures in search of their integrity. Each being is in flux, breaking down and rearranging according to superior forces, pondering questions of identity and destiny. The project, a collection of film treatments co-authored by the artist and screenwriter Laura Sinceri in 2020, took the form of a unique movie script. This script was entrusted to twelve selected individuals who interpreted it for a specific time, allowing them to write comments, make observations, add notes, remove pages, draw, doodle, or even destroy parts of it.

The goal was to create a stratification of diverse voices and impressions, virtually redefining the original text's meaning. Meanwhile, from 2021 to 2022, Martinucci maintained a personal archive of the ever-changing script to track and experience its transformation. In 2023, the project materialized through the publication titled Turbomondi (Stratigrafia) by VIAINDUSTRIAE publishing, encapsulating its journey.
