I Dormienti is the seventeenth solo studio album Brian Eno, released in 1999. It is also the title of an art-book by Eno and Italian painter, sculptor and set designer Mimmo Paladino, released in 2000, packaged with a copy of the album and featuring pictures & sketches of the installation from which the music is drawn. The music on the album is taken from an installation that took place at the undercroft of the Roundhouse, Chalk Farm Road, Camden, London, from 9 September to 6 October 1999.
The bodies of I Dormienti (The Sleepers) refer to the remains of the inhabitants of Pompeii and Herculaneum, but refer more even to Henry Moore’s drawings representing the British war shelters during World War II.
