The Walls

Villa Italia emerges from a base that mirrors the contours of the natural landscape, positioning its structures near the river. These buildings, integrated into the terrain, form a series of terraces that cascade towards the vista, echoing the terraced stone walls of medieval villages.

The Centre

As the buildings ascend the hill, they adopt a more dynamic three-dimensional form, expanding in both height and shape to evoke the essence of a typical Italian town center. This part of Villa Italia is conceived with the charm of an 'old town center' in mind, abundant with squares and winding streets where the most emblematic buildings and facades are situated. This design approach ensures that the architectural experience shifts with the viewer's perspective, offering vistas that encapsulate the most iconic eras of Italian history through a harmonious blend of contemporary and traditional elements.
