Project: Various Typologies
The new over the ancient. A space for books in Italy The work of the studio will deal with the theme of the Italian landscape, the privileged place for designing and experimenting with relations between ancient and new. Here the combination of nature and artifice, which over the centuries has defined the original features of architecture, offers a unique accumulation of layers and measures, most recently supplemented by the twentieth century.The project experience will fit into this geographical horizon, through the project of the Archive of Giorgio Bassani, author of the "Romanzo di Ferrara", authentic interpreter of the Po city. Place, time, earth, light, silence will be the elements to fix, in the modified contemporary reality, a renewed, but not free, flow of measures between spirit and matter, in a context that derives its character from a centuries-old silent, powerful synthesis and motionless.
