36 Ore a Palazzo Abatellis
In Palazzo Abatellis, the Scarpa’s intervention (realized in the 50’s) creates a sense of disorientation in the observer.
The spectator is called to interact with the art works in order to fully experience it, the interaction becomes then subjective and immediate.
The mechanical supports, the architecture detail of voids, stairs, holes, steps, but also colors and frames, claim for different observation of the silent protagonists of the rooms, who ask to pass every time gap and take part in the present.

The aim of the project was try to capture these short moments of disorientation but at the same time the spontaneous fascination.
