Architettura "Correta" ["Revised" Architecture] (2014)
The project series documents the installation "Architettura "Correta"" designed by Pettena for the exhibition "Soleil Politique" at the Museion in Bolzano, in 2014. The project was a design for a new museum entrance. The installation was made of three glass walls on which were drawn facade details of three historical buildings of the city. The central glass wall represents the entrance from the Piacentini square in Bolzano, with, at its left, a ‘serlian’ arch, and, at its right, a detail of the portico of a ‘Piazza d’Italia’ by Giorgio de Chirico. The idea was to "connect the museum to the city’s history, an architectural element was chosen, one which, in addition to favoring the idea of ‘entrance’ to the exhibit also permitted a view both of the urban and the natural setting, the sky, the mountains, an environment typical of the area in which the city itself rises." 
The project series contains a sketch and a spiral bound volume with correspondence between Pettena and Pierre Bal Blanc, curator of the exhibitions, and proposals for the installation. The project series also contains photographs of the installation, including printouts.
