Molto piccolo piuttosto grande

The projects brought together in this book cover a period of 16 years. They are small-scale projects commissioned by private clients for restorations of interiors – completed – and large-scale projects involving cultural spaces and refurbishments of public areas, subject to international competitions – still on paper. However, in the author’s view, the very small and rather large of the book’s title are not in conflict with each other, but rather constitute a unique aspect of a methodological approach to architectural planning. In both situations the project is developed from the starting point of a critical reading of existing conditions, observation of the traces that form a palimpsest over sites and artefacts, and mediation between the client’s needs and wants. The project always amounts to a further layer overlaying the previous ones, which reveals and selects certain characteristics of the places it seeks to modify, and is presented as a link between the past and other changes in the future.
