Marcello Sèstito is an architect and the author of numerous “books of notable conceptual importance and great impact on aesthetics”, according to Franco Purini, who describes him as an artist-scientist. His works include Alfabeti di architettura, Colonne stilate; Architetture Globali; Fata Morgana o la città riflessa; Immedesimazioni; Il Gorgo e la Rocca, tra Scilla e Cariddi territori della mente; Architettura Animale; Corpo e Architettura. He has spoken at conferences all over the world, most recently in Kunming, China and San Paolo, Brazil. His theoretical research and design work is split between Milan and Reggio Calabria, and all in collaboration with Antonella Pavia, whose life and home he shares. Since 1994 he has been a professor of Architectural Composition at the Mediterranea University of Reggio Calabria. His research and designs are featured in leading sector journals, and focus on the relationship between art and architecture. Sèstito is interested in the myth, in all its various forms, and his work entails the continuous elaboration of mental structures, between syncretism and heteronomy, suitable for the configuration of new future scenarios.
