San Giovanni in Fiore, 25 June 2003
Regard to the Mediterranean
territory and on the Mediterranean architecture:
the signs of the history, the continuous erosions or adding, spoiling,
lichen invasion, chill aggression, torrential rain, saltiness,
implacable sun, the
architectures are entities in continuous transformation in the
time and in the space.
as rebellion to the concreteness, the greyness, the uselessness of the contemporary San Giovanni in Fiore re-appear the memories:
the most colourful shutters, or frames and transoms of the “Timpune”,
some rare, sensitive person, still colours the contours of its
door differently from that of the neighbour; inevitably the green
of the pines of the Sila, the blue of its nocturnal sky, the
red of the blood of Christ and of all the men of the earth.
