Marcia is a project that comes from a new generation of young pizza makers who took charge the family tradition, with a renewed proposal focused on the care of ingredients and Neapolitan-style processes with the stamp on new flavors.


The image of the shop follows the same premise of taking the Italian spirit and warmth inspired by tones, textures, wear and tear, and patterns of Tuscany, but with local and contemporary materials, language, and resources. Marcia seeks to surprise with details inside a balanced environment. It leads to the meeting of the warmth of the past and the freshness of the new, within the traditional dynamics of Villa Urquiza neighborhood.


The monochrome sand-toned palette of the shop interior and the warm lighting play a fundamental role so that the patterns and textures become the protagonists and contrast with the exterior where the original tone of the building was respected. The textured and illuminated interior draws the attention of those who walk along the sidewalk of the neighborhood and acts as a facade.


When dealing with a limited budget and after following an investigation of materials to make up the shop, we found an industrial waste of specimens from the concrete mixers that are used to carry out hardness tests. These specimens form the main bar that due to their curved shape, soften the weave and achieve a play of grazing lighting. The same occurs with the play of curves and counter-curves at the bottom of the bar, where old colonial tiles with a marbled paint treatment were used.


The protagonist of the project is undoubtedly the double-height wall cladding that shelters the clay oven. As if it were a hand-carved stone, the name of the project was engraved on this element. Thanks to the specialized workforce, the work done with stones and natural pigments stands out, achieving a porous texture that seduces to the touch.


Another fundamental material in the project is travertine, a national stone from the province of San Juan. It was used in the form of a rustic crust as countertop of the bar, which highlights the nobility of the raw material. Travertine also appears in tables and lamps with a honed finish, and they play with the versatility of its treatment.


The selected vegetation appears desaturated, and is integrated into each sector of the shop contributing to freshness and complementing with a play of shadows on the walls, highlighting the textures made manually with dyed plaster.
Following with the use of accessible materials and resources, the benches were made of vanilla calcareous used on the sidewalks of the neighborhood. Fiber cement pots were also used in the toilet in a stacked manner to form the sink and as a base for the tables. All with the same porous texture of the walls
