Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Sixty years after its construction, Monte Amiata Housing is still a pilgrimage destination and is recognized as an architectural reference in the experiment of Gallaretese.
The Portuguese photographer Karina Castro stepped into the building, which was designed in 1967 by Carlo Aymonino and Aldo Rossi, as one of the dwellers.
With a synaesthetic walk through the housing blocks, she visually captures the complex design of forms and colors of this modern masterpiece.
Monte Amiata Housing was imagined by Rossi and Aymonino as an urban microcosmos, converging in the metaphysical scenography of three squares and the outdoor amphitheater.
Interpreting the designs by Le Corbusier and Project X for the contemporary cities of the 50s, Aymonino creates a fragmented functional system of blocks not regarding the non-present surroundings. Breaking the traditional conception of the private housing block, Monte Amiata Housing became a reference for the later Italian residential architecture.
