Piratello Cemetery Imola
A PLACE THAT EVOKES THE DEEPER STATES OF HUMAN NATURE.
From the very beginning we have tried to imagine a place that evokes the deeper states of human nature. We designed a reservoir, an "impluvium" with the upper and lower areas separated by a passage.
The stairs to the well area leads the procession to a slow descent. Despite its earthly consistency the territorial boundary of the reservoir, is the custodian of the surrounding area’s meaning and value. At the center, the mirror effect caused by the water creates an overlapping of images, it highlights the Christian cross which influences the surrounding environment. Contact with the natural elements water, trees and sun evokes in man, the infinite implications of life.
On reaching the surface, the tension subsides, the light and the landscape prevail, nothing remains but a subtle feeling of silence.
