Montagne Naturali [Natural Mountains] (2014)
The project series documents the landscape design "Montagne Naturali" designed by Pettena for the Montellori estate and farm, in Fucecchio, near Florence), in 2014. The installation consisted of a series of metal trellises of various shapes and sizes on which grew shrubs and bushes to create a wall to hide the farming machinery. "[...] architecture is given what is due architecture, that is structure and functionality, and nature is granted the final result, which will not necessarily coincide with the intentions of the designer, whose intervention is predominantly ‘an oneiric quotation’." 
The project series contains sketches and a booklet with a sketch, plans of the trellises, and drawings.
