Terragni and Ligeri’s CASA RUSTICI


Terragni and Lingeri’s Casa Rustici is going back to its original splendour. Since it was declared a national monument in 1992, a new awareness aimed at the protection was aroused. The stones of the floors, the walls of glass tiles, the marbles of the façades have been restored. Careful stratigraphic analyses have allowed to re-establish materials and colours. Also some residents’ work has contributed to give back splendour to the spaces of flats and offices, often reinterpreting the greatness of the internals in a contemporary key. This book shows the state the art achieved by such a work of “active safeguard”. A new graphic and iconographic apparatus along with the critical texts by Alessandra Coppa, Giuseppe Marinoni, and Francesco Repishti. Photo by Marco Garofalo.
