Teatro dei Burattini

"The theater seemed to me in a place where architecture ends and begins the world of imagination."
Aldo Rossi

The puppet theater represents a temporary and collective use of public space, deeply tied to the evolution of our culture throughout history.
It is an expression of the Commedia dell'Arte, represented through the telling of stories about identity and values ​​of a watching community who takes the opportunity to discuss his experiences and traditions through the stories.
2A+P/A has turned his corner in a large urban object, made of pure and colorful shapes: a small architecture to house the stories, a portion of the scene of the city.
The show, curated by Arianna D'Amato - Burattini Collacarta, will stage three chapters traits from the evergreen "The Adventures of Pinocchio" by Collodi.

Our project "House based on a drawing by Ettore Sottsass" on Domus 968. An exercise in subtle interpretation brought the architecture office 2A+P/A to give functionality to an idea by Ettore Sottsass: "Monumental architecture" a drawing he made in 2003 became the subject of their intellectual speculation, coherent with the drawing’s underlying philosophy, and ended up becoming a house.
