Itineraries of Contemporary Architecture in Ivrea

La Serra building by Iginio Cappai and Pietro Mainardis.
Built between 1967 and 1973, and marked by an architectural language associated with the Pop Art imaginary of the 1960s, the building has a very complex planimetric organisation, being distributed over six levels starting from the basement (where the Roman ruins are structured into an archaeological itinerary), that plays upon the reproduction of the complexity of the urban space of the ancient city in a critical vein.
