Notes: Feb. 2005. A report on architect Cini Boeri's new detached house located on the Sardinian island of Maddelena, a sloping, almost rhombus-shaped box house that harmoniously interacts with the surrounding rolling landscape - an ergonomic effect that mirrors the aesthetics of like-minded architects Lina Bo Bardi and Gaetano Pesce. Includes a subsequent review of a book-interview on Cini Boeri by Cecilia Avogadro. Italian/English.
