“Language is not an expression of being, it is a form of being.”
Fiedler, The Evaluation of Fine Arts’ Working, 1876

All of the external elements of the building, such as the relationship between the production hall and the countryside with the mountains in the background, are part of a complex mechanism respectful of the spirit of the location.

Stefano Gri and Piero Zucchi have been working together for a number of years, complementing each other almost alchemically and continuously producing works of excellent architecture. The architects came together before the advent of the glamorisation and mediatisation of architecture (which, admittedly, is not entirely bad, but it has certainly radically changed the profession) and have obstinately approached their work – as can be inferred from their projects, which are not merely seen as random attempts to obtain professional success – with reason, trying to compose architectural discourse through a patient game of syntax.
