The sub-series documents the publication "L'anarchitetto”, written by Pettena and published by Guaraldi, in Florence, in 1973. The book consists of an essay in which Pettena describes himself as an "anarchitect" as he sees architecture more as a metaphor of the creative condition that starts with the intention of "making architecture" but ends up making art. He also states his refusal to "to recognize the borders between disciplines." 
The sub-series contains pictures of Pettena's projects to be selected from for the book and scans of "L'anarchitetto”.
