Podere Molino dei Ciliegi

“In Umbria, more than elsewhere, what was built in the rural landscape has been preserved; in this way we can talk about an archeology that is also future” (F. Farinelli – University of Bologna).

Re-inhabiting rural architecture is always a fascinating subject, very topical, because it assumes the complex purpose of “turning old to new”. My project, for the lawyers Lemme-Anselmo, implies a functional rehabilitation focused on the clear discrimination between historical pre-existence and contemporary language, possible conservation and needed renovation.

Project – Realization: 2012-2016 (‘Turnkey’ service by coordinating local and foreign workers).

The total optical permeability of the envelope, in which the absence of the common dimming devices has been replaced by a concealed mechanized system of Corten aluminium sunscreens, declares a total perceptive relationship between inside and outside. So becomes the house a privileged observatory on the surrounding landscape of Faena river; it accepts the place and listens to it, to fully acquire it (without partiality and omissions), to the intimate and daily experience of living.
