"The architectures are located in the lowest built-up area of the world: it is made up of huts, chicken coops, sheepfolds, fences; sacred and ancient places, inhabited by animals and men. Fragile and temporary, the POOR ARCHITECTURES are always present in the vast globalized world, inour countryside as well as in the most remote ones; areas with uncertain perimeters, made of nets, poles, beams, faggots, logs or fences; always dirty, imperfect, lukewarm from manual labour. Like apolytheistic territory, made of animist and mysterious presences, they belong to that magical classicism of Virgil, where the myth, poetry and agriculture coexist in the same anthropological landscape between the 'sacred masses' and the energies of the seasons and constellations."
