Scope and Content

The project series documents Pettena's preliminary study and proposal for the restoration and conversion of the Forte Inglese, a Napoleonic era fortification in Portoferraio, Italy. Pettena worked on this project in 1992. The restauration and conversion project for the fort was not realized because of changes in the local government. The proposal consisted of converting the fort into an exhibition space, an auditorium and a public garden "by simply adding spaces that utilized volumes created underground or at the rear: thus the respect of the preexisting context was assured, from the viewpoint of history as well as landscape." [1]

The project series contains a preliminary study report by Pettena, sketches, site plans, floor plans, elevations, and sections for Pettena's proposal, reference photographs, research material, such as photocopies of publications on the fort and reference plans for the historic building.
