Already Seen Portable Landscape (1973)
The project series documents "Already Seen Portable Landscape", a performance imagined by Pettena as an aftermath of the "About Non-conscious Architecture" series of photographs. "Once the experience of critical interpretation and documentation of “non-conscious” architecture was concluded, the “already seen” landscapes were kept in a suitcase, in the form of photographs, as baggage that served as a reminder, above all for the person who had had that experience, of the story of a particular moment of readiness to look at physical space in an unconventional way." 
The project series contains a photograph montage of the pages of the photo album showing the photographs of the project "Non-conscious Architecture" (1972) and a photograph of Pettena with the suitcase containing the album.
