La Mia Idea Di Architettura [My Idea of Architecture] (2014)
The project series documents the performance "La Mia Idea Di Architettura" held at Base, Spazio per l'arte in Florence, in 2014. The performance consists of a lecture given by Pettena, standing in a window frame, speaking to people passing in the street. "To illustrate his idea of architecture, Pettena chose to address not only experts in the field but also a random audience, passers-by on the street as he spoke."  The lecture was held in the context of an exhibition on Radical Tools, the Florentine group of the ‘radical’ movement architects and artists. Each protagonist of the group were invited to present a lecture.
The project series contains photographs of the performance.
