An imaginary facadeVideo-mapping installation on San Petronio church
Our proposal “An imaginary facade” has been selected as finalist for the International Competition “The Wall”.
Starting from the concept that the wall is today an ephemeral canvas in which it could be possible apply temporary frescos, the façade of the church of San Petronio has become the scene of a stratification of the architecture, from the old basis to a modern grafting.
We decided to call Giovanni Michelucci, Kenzo Tange, Guido Cavani, Giovanni Vaccaro and Saverio Muratori to propose a completation of the façade of the church in Piazza Maggiore, with their architectures located in Bologna, in order to continue the old proposal by Baldassare Peruzzi, Jacopo Barozzi da Vignola and Andrea Palladio.
Thanks to a video mapping on the façade of our collages, the project is realized on a scale of 1: 1 thanks to the simultaneous use of 20 projectors mounted on four towers.
The images depict the story, stratifying on matter, completing its evolution and thus figurating an imaginary church.
