The dynamic interdefinition of building and existence.
Mid Thirties on the island of Capri.
An Italian intellectual decides to feed his melancholic desire for space. A man of letters of intense political and cultural activity within a general context of concern.
He decides to construct his architectural portrait. His autobiography imprinted on the rock.
"A house like me"
How such an idea be shaped in architectural language;
How would his human existence be translated in architectural value;
The resulting buildig encompasses the memory of its owner' s existence, how philosophical worries issues and the substancial respect for the natural characteristics of the surrounding scenery. The example of Casa Malaparte gives the opportunity for redefining the constituent implications of habitation, the connection between form and landscape. For redefining architecture as a mechanism of constant conversation with the human existence.
