About        Stanze        ITAENG


Stanze is the first bilingual architecture book series by Plectica Editrice aimed at disseminating concise contributions on the theme of the stanza (or room).
The collection of this series’ volumes intends to provide a general overview of the multi-faceted interpretations of the topic of the room as both a spatial and temporal element, hence not only material but also immaterial.

Stanze Volume 01
Domestic City Ugo La Pietra

The first volume of Stanze assembles carefully selected images and texts by Ugo La Pietra. An emblematic figure of the Italian Radical Season, La Pietra shares his understanding of the room as a setting for material and visual experimentation involving social processes and objects of domestic use. This retrospective anthology with notes by the author himself reveals the ways in which the act of writing constituted an essential component of his most celebrated designs.
