The transformation of a tiny place at the top of an ancient village. An open space with tiny dimensions – quite like in inner spaces – living toghether with a large landscape view.

You can discover it – just when the walk through the village seems to end – jumping on the narrow steps of a ladder: reaching the top, the built elements and the landscape appear as a whole composition, in which the big and the little have ottically the same weight.

A lonely seat absorbs all the different directions of existing elements, and it’s shaped to lift the observer’s eyes over the edge of railing, to look without obstructions. The vertical stone – slightly rotated on the wall closet o it, to improve the visión of it from down – it’s the setting for the silhouette of the person that seats.

It’s an invitation – made of stone – for staying and for contemplation of landscape.
