The obsession of the enclosure

Botticini, Camillo; ABDA Architetti
This paper is about the architectural experience which evolved through the design of  cemeteries. Describing five different cases, we identified the relationship between the foundamental principle of the enclosure and its variations due to specific contextual conditions, both related to existing historical elements and to the local landscape. In this way the project for new cemeteries or their enlargement become an experimentation on "identity variations".
