In a place which seems to be out of time, connected to reality by a long bridge like an antique tuff stone island, the project researches a dialogue between traces of history and contemporaneity, with its necessity to regain the bonds with its past. Thanks to objects which represent the history of Italian design the interiors become a stage for connecting with shapes and materials of the tradition of this region. Discreet presences able to give new meanings to ancient places. Not only objects but also colours become witnesses of the relationship between the changing landscape and the interiors where one can find the grey shades of the fog which covers Civita making it almost disappear, the blue of summer skies, the green of the trees and the ochre of tuff stone. Wanting to research new ways to live the interiors led to suggest different uses of the space in order to nurture the different necessities of the people who will live in this house. Adaptable furniture inspired by handmade crafts offer new micro-habitats in which different activities can coexist, as in an artist atelier where everyday life is interwoven with work, art and culture. Domestic spaces where conviviality and conversation are essential, not only between people but also between them and the spirit of the place in which they are staying.
