Le Memorie are a series of diaries written over a period of 8 years. I perceive them as an extension of my mind, a first shy materialization of my emotions, creative thoughts, empty moments and memorable adventures. A semi-private dock where sometimes other people could landfall with me.
The Bridging Migrant
I have written this manifesto as a need to find words to describe the driving energy and approach of my practice, a kind of energy that I am sure is and could be further shared between other fellow humans. This writing is a result of my site experimentation 2A Interzone.
Diario d'Esodo (Exodus Diary) is my Master thesis investigating the contemporary social and spatial tissue and the potentialities contained in the interstices of its mesh. The research-journey unfolds from the analysis of the capitalistic/authoritarian paradigms of space and identities towards the state of exception as a possible spatiality for collective emancipation. Such thesis works as a theoretical framework to contextualize the Primordi project, as an attempt to cross-over theories and visions of thinkers like M. Foucault, L. De Cauter, H. Bey, G. Clément and C. Ward as a base to critically build alternative scenarios.
Architecture of the Abandonment
This research investigates the socio/spatial potentialities of what is marginal within the architectural field. The first part is a repertoire of experiences, projects and architectural cases related to 4 main thematics: - Itinerant living in impermanent places, - The abandoned outskirts as experimental peninsulas, - Autonomy in building construction, - The creativity-reuse synergy in building construction. The intent is to investigate these themes and reformulate an alternative type of architecture and way of inhabiting space in which they converge together. The second part is a detailed analysis of a siderurgic centre as a possible site where to develop a prototype of such architectural scenario.
