"Concorso di Idee Curare lo Spirito nei luoghi della cura del corpo"

June 26, 2019, Cloister of the Commendatore of the Monumental Complex of the Santo Spirito in Sassia in Rome

Special mention

In the Award Ceremony of the "Ideas Competition Curating the Spirit in places of body care" held on June 26, 2019 at the Cloister of the Commendatore of the Monumental Complex of the Santo Spirito in Sassia in Rome, the project I portrayed for a space of meditation achievable within hospitals receives a special mention 'for the plurality of signs in the container-contained relationship'.

The space, open to all religious affiliations, without iconic references and able to communicate silence, facilitation of prayer but also opportunities for meeting and hospitality, promotes silence and meditation, but also allows, with its simplicity, the encounter with people of different faiths or cultures for a moment of comfort in the difficult moment of the relationship with pain, configuring a calm, simple, durable, hospitable, silent, harmonious space, according to a minimalist discretion that allows the eye to rest simply on the geometries drawn by the various elements of sitting or division, to favor concentration with the only rigor of design, its lightness and essentiality.
