Browsing this book, which provides a concise yet effective summary of the work of Leonori Architetti in recent years, two levels of thought come to mind, different but obviously connected: one relating to the protagonists, the authors of the works, the people whose CVs, experience, training and family traditions breathe life into the studio; the other relates to the works themselves, their character, their quality, the style that informs the way they configure settings, spaces and architecture. Working as architects in the course or the continuation of a tradition is not a neutral condition; it entails specific choices, conduct and methods. Historically, families of architects have acted as integrated systems of artisan knowledge, entrepreneurial capacity and relational networks. Systems which have established organic relations with the environment in which they operate, and provided support for the individuals, helping them to internalise prevailing issues and shared values and in so doing ensuring a solid connection with clients. Inventario examines a selection of recent projects carried out by the studio between 2014 and 2019. Pragmatically, it only features projects that are completed and operating successfully.
