+ DESCRIPTION

This project definitively marks the beginning of a new period in Bellini’s architecture.
What has changed? Certainly the language, with a different compositional syntax, more open and relaxed, and one can certainly see in his work a new simplicity in expressing the themes of the project, communicating the content with greater immediacy.
The space inside the museum, extremely rich of spatial emotions, contrasts with the clean and bare buildings stretched out towards the open space of the lake.
What remains from the previous twenty years?
The ability to control the buildings’ dimensions, the attention to their relationship with the surround cityscape, and to all the small details, the ability to “show”…
(Ermanno Ranzani)
