OUR PROJECT

To give new life to abandoned places pervaded by the beauty of time and silence. To listen to their soul, aiming at respect and balance. To travel the world and bring back objects full of suggestions. To harmonize bio-architecture, design and contemporary art with original features and local materials. To imagine each dwelling as if it were meant for us. And to host you with all the attention that a guest expects.

ARTIST DESIGN

I have always felt an attraction for those places and those homes where, for a subtle balance between the natural world, the making of man and the flow of time, one feels in harmony. Some of these places are already perfect just like that, and any further intervention would disturb them. In others, on the other hand, this balance has been improperly modified and, underneath the superfluous heaviness, you can perceive their tension returns to their origins. Intervening means therefore listening, because the that of the genius loci is a subtle voice that demands the right time. The architecture of a place is like a sculpture: you must study its volumes, light, balance, perspectives, and remove the useless material to discover its soul. Which should be liberated as an ancient music which has not been played for a long time. Anime a Sud is, more than a project, a vision that I have pursued. They are places of beauty saved from oblivion, which start hosting people again. Inside all the residences you will find a selection of my works of art and design, for more information visit www.lucagiannini.it.
