The historic center, a pedestrian street, a building of end 700, stones, courtyard, houses of Railing ... This is "Casa DOVA". Characterized in a mixture of emotions. An austere corridor turns accompanying the entry in "Casa Dova" a path "sensory", built on the basis of provocation of latent impressions, which exist in all of us. Stirring up, in a setting almost sterile, muffled, disturbing, absolutely took irregular shapes, a whirlwind of memories, thoughts, gestures, perhaps forgotten but always present.
