Scope and Content

The project series documents "La Mia Casa All'Elba", Pettena's house in Viticcio on the Island of Elba. The project, started in 1978, remained an ongoing project as the house has undergone many transformations over the years. The residence "is conditioned by its relationship with the physical context, the material and the working of space." [1] Pettena even reused some of the material already on site to build the residence. The house is comprised of different pavilions and spaces interconnected by small paths: "The house has progressively been defined as a sequence of spaces connected by routes, just like in a village. So it goes on growing almost like a primitive village, through intentions, successive organizations of spaces that define one another and are linked together." [2]

The project series contains a sketch, plans, perspective drawings of the house and later additions. The project series is also comprised of photographs, including interior views showing artworks, photographs of Elba possibly used for research, and two videocassettes possibly with recordings of TV shows presenting the house.
