First, an incomplete architecture, that has been previously photographed near Santa Croce di Magliano, keeps new life into an old engravings representing a well-known Molisan infrastructure, composing of a sort of living infrastructure: it’s a revenge of the unfinished landscape, a very-common practice and style in southern Italy.

Then, the variation of the facades of a social housing project (CEP in Campobasso) grows up on an old engravings of a Roman Villa located in Molise, Villa Zappone, keeping high an example of social and utilitarist architecture.
This triptych has been realized on an 50s concrete unused church of Santa Croce di Magliano, keeping light on the stratification of roman, neo-classical, modern style.
