Fontana a Monselice | Massimo Scolari
Massimo Scolari , is an Italian architect, painter and designer. We found his work trough a post published today at Lebbeus Woods’s BLOG and foud his fascinating ink drawings, among some paintings and projects. Scolari graduated in architecture in Milan in 1969. As read in the wiki, in 1973 he became a professor of History of Architecture at Palermo, and of Drawing at the Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia (IUAV). Between 1975 and 1993, he was visiting professor in various universities like: Cornell University, Cooper Union, the Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies and others.
Surfing through his personal blog, we discovered this project about a small intervention at the Fontana in Monselice, which is a town and municipality located in northeastern Italy, in the Veneto region, in the province of Padua. Here are some of his fantastic drawings:
Altough this is a small project in scale, the strenght of Scolari’s drawings are eerie and sometimes even shocking.
Now, getting closer to the fountain, we can see it before and after:
