The story of this small architecture firm, which has built a collection of houses in the countryside north of Rome over the past ten years, becomes an opportunity to reflect on the role of authoriality in contemporary design. Drawings, photographs, and texts illustrate some aspects of what was conceived as a structural project, and offer new perspectives on constructing the Italian landscape in the digital era.
