"The Scarzuola" and the area around Orvieto

Weekend (3days/2nights)

"... The Scarzuola, when someone observes that the new part, created by me, is not" Franciscan, "I say, of course, because it represents the world in general and in particular my world - one where I had the fated to live and work - Art, Culture, Worldliness, Elegance, of Pleasures
(Also Vices, Wealth, and Powers, etc..) But where I made room for
oasis of meditation, study, work, music and silence, sizes and Poverty, social life and a hermetic life of solitary contemplation, the realm of fantasy, of Fables, Legends, Echoes and Reflections out of time and space because everyone we can find echoes of the past and notes much of the future ... "
Tommaso Buzzi
Franciscan monastery founded by St. Francis of Assisi in 1218, who planted a clump of laurel and roses and made a spring water source. Montegiove rises in the town of Montegabbione (TR). Owes its name to a marsh plant, the scarza, the Saint used to build a hut. The apse of the church contains a fresco of the first half of the thirteenth century depicting St. Francis in levitation. In 1956 the monastery was bought and restored by the Milanese architect Tommaso Buzzi (1900-1981), who designed and built between 1958 and 1978 next to the monastery his ideal city, conceived as a "theatrical machine". The city Buzziana, which comprises a total of 7 theaters, culminating on the Acropolis: a mountain of buildings constructed from a large series of archetypes, empty inside, and with many compartments as in a termite mound, revealing multiple perspectives . One type of relationship is established between the initiation convent (holy city) and the factories of the theater (city profane), laden with symbols and secrets, references and citations. Inspired all'Hypnerotomachia Poliphili of Francesco Colonna (1499), the style that best interprets his lincenza neomanierismo is that he identifies: the use of scales in all directions, the deliberate disproportion of parts, some monsters, bundling of buildings, monuments, arriving at surrealism, something labyrinthine, evocative, the geometric, astronomical, magical.
