Scarpa. Una cerniera spaziale per lo Steri

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


For an architect thinking about his own city, and a specific piace inside it, to improve it means concentrating on the specific qualities of the site from a historical, economic, social and cultural standpoint. This writing will go into the details of this reflection, through the experiences of Carlo Scarpa and the prominent role undertaken by him in the definition of a possible innovative strategy dealing with the Steri (1972-1978). All this is directed towards the acquisition of the capacity for recognizing the physicality of a meaningful architecture and the spatial relationships that define it, like for example those between interior and exterior, thus making one’s own the concept of threshold and spatial continuum. Design choices must be directed towards a process which has as its final objective the defining of a particular sequence linked to the idea of contemporary interiors.
