Abstract (in English)

The capability to extend the breath of the place through the architectural project is the basis of the thought process of architect Mino Fiocchi (1893-1983). He is the lesser known interpreter of the Italian architectural movement “Novecento Milanese” which includes the works of two known architects, Gio Ponti and Giovanni Muzio. Fiocchi’s work celebrates the encounter of architecture and nature, of the collective and individually intimate memory of the place. The architectural structures that are conceived through this process no longer belong to the architect who designs them, nor to their owners, but to the landscapes that welcome them. Fiocchi’s architectural production in the territory of the Alps and his composition method shall be the focus of this essay. This same subject is part of a larger research conducted for a PhD earned at the Università di Architettura di Venezia , in 2007.
