CASA VERDE - Young women's care home for mental health problems
visual narration by Simone Bossi Photographer
The project aims to recover and integrate an old site, already used as an orphanage, placed on a hilly area next to San Miniato Medieval city centre.
The "CASA VERDE" project is a search to found links:
_ with the "guests Girls" by sticking their graphic works on the glass facade;
_ with the woods through the study of the leafs’ color shades in different seasons;
_ with the city by recovering "vicoli carbonai" , ancient path ways useful and necessary for the maintenance of the hillside;
_ with the natural light
_ with the centuries-old cypress trees next to the building.
_ with art through the artist Mercurio who paints the guests’ faces creating a collection of contemporary artworks.
