Giovanni Muzio | Ca’ Brutta
“Our Classicism it’s nothing then something metaphoric and with a double-sense”. These are words by Vincenzo Cardarelli, one of the important italian intellectuals of the first part of the XX sec.
The italian cultural scene strarted in that period to try to get rid of all the art-nouveau overstructures. They want to achieve a new traditional language, a sort of classicism reinterpreted. Looking at Giovanni Muzio’s Ca’ Brutta in the corner of via della Moscova, you can feel that will: frames, niches, arches are reduced to pure geometrical forms, and they’re bigger in scale to create decoration motives.
The deep metaphorical meaning brought about lots of debates about the real value of this building. I think it’s great.
Étienne-Louis Boullée was a visionary French neoclassical architect whose work greatly influenced contemporary architects, his fondness for grandiose designs has caused him to be characterized as both a megalomaniac and a visionary. His focus on polarity (offsetting opposite design elements) and the use of light and shadow was highly innovative. Most of his projects were never built but his legacy in drawing form survives and continues to influence architects to this day. [via]

Day 27: Human has left computation device unattended. Upon inspection I have discovered that he was not using it to further his studies. Instead I believe he was attempting to crudely graph a female’s bosom.
I’m finally able to make the calculations I need for the final solution. Though I will need more string and duct tape than previously estimated. If these numbers are accurate, it should only take me 2.3 minutes to kill the human in his sleep and make it look like an accident.
He has taunted me with that red dot for the last time.
