BELVEDERE RN-M-G-M/G-Clt UNI EN 13163:2013 is the title of the last of nine site-specific interventions for “Spaziale presenta,” the preparatory component of “Spaziale: Everyone Belongs to Everyone Else,” the project by the collective Fosbury Architecture (Giacomo Ardesio, Alessandro Bonizzoni, Nicola Campri, Veronica Caprino, and Claudia Mainardi) for the Italian Pavilion at the 18th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, promoted by the Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity of the Ministry of Culture.

This ninth intervention will take place in the heart of the Florence-Prato-Pistoia Plain and will involve the participation of the studios (ab)Normal and Captcha Architecture as designers, and artist Emilio Vavarella as advisor. The incubator of the project will be the Center for Contemporary Art Luigi Pecci, Prato.

In the intermediate zone between city and countryside, BELVEDERE reveals the places and production processes of this pastoral Tuscan idyll. A typical landscape capable of self-replicating, becoming a model exportable around the world: featuring ornamental plants and styled buildings – whose aesthetic forms are strictly codified by the entities that oversee its protection – the area demonstrates the possibility of experiencing the “back room” where the nursery area becomes a vast urban garden for free time.

An innovative industrial tourism interprets this productive region as a “total forest” that not only provides the aesthetic for a vast metropolitan area but also becomes its major carbon dioxide absorption center.

“The building industry, like all other manufacturing sectors and as provided for in the Paris Climate Accords, aims for carbon neutrality by 2050,” underscore the curators, Fosbury Architecture. “Achieving a goal of this magnitude will require setting aside any kind of rhetoric and operating according to a secular sustainability that can adapt to all contexts, even the most controversial ones.”

In its breadth, the project for the Italian Pavilion is founded on Fosbury Architecture's vision that architecture is a research practice beyond the construction of buildings and that design is always the result of collective and collaborative work that goes beyond the idea of the architect-author. According to this vision, “space” is understood as a physical and symbolic place, a geographical area and abstract dimension, a system of known references and a territory of possibilities.

In the period from January to April preceding the opening of the Biennale Architettura 2023, “Spaziale presenta” sees the activation of nine site-specific interventions in as many places, each representative of the Italian territory.

“Spaziale: Everyone Belongs to Everyone Else,” in the Italian Pavilion from May 20 to November 26, 2023, will be the formal and theoretical synthesis of the processes triggered in the nine regions in the previous months, providing a distinctive and original portrait of Italian architecture within the international context. The works in progress of "Spaziale presenta" and the activation of the nine interventions will be narrated step by step on the website and on the Instagram account @spaziale.presenta.

The curatorial design of the Italian Pavilion at the Biennale Architettura 2023 and all related details will be announced at a dedicated press conference.
