The house corresponds to a principle of identity. It is complex matter, made of practicality and play, of memories and planning. Listening and organising in space was the meaning of a collaboration. In a consonance built in dialogue, Antonino understood a way of being, a rhythm. He interpreted it in proportions, materials and harmonies, giving shape to a new architectural vision. Monumental and intimate. His and mine at the same time. And able to accommodate the sediments and gestures of those who will pass over time.
