La Linea Del Tempo [Time Line] (2011)



Level of archival description:
Extent and medium:
  • 2 digital files (1 MB)
    2 photographs
Scope and content:
The project series documents the installation "La Linea Del Tempo" presented at the Galleria Quadro 096, in Fiesole, in 2011. The installation consists of an architect's drawing table, of which the top gives the illusion of sinking in. The installation is accompanied by a television playing Pettena's 1971 movie "Intens" playing on a loop. "The idea of presenting together things that were conceived in years so distant that they can easily be thought of as two different seasons of life is meant to underline the author’s conceptual coherence on the subject of his own interest regarding the architect’s profession." [1]

The project series contains three photographs of the installation and a project description.
