Fondazione Bertarelli Concert Hall

Forum Fondazione Bertarelli is a concert hall for 350 people surrounded only by nature on the slopes of Mount Amiata, in the Tuscan Maremma, where amplification takes place thanks to the shape generated by golden ratio and natural materials, in order to avoid it from being too rigid in that environment created by the light and wind. Replaces a plan which, in that very place, provided for a complex of nine residential buildings. Aesthetic values are not perceived as added, they are part of the building and radiate from it. From the sky it looks like an olive still attached to its nearest leaf.

Edoardo Milesi

Edoardo Milesi studied at the IUAV University of Venice and graduated in 1979 from the Polytechnic University of Milan with Franca Helg. He is an expert in the field of landscape and environmental protection, he has achieved specialization in numerous fields, including ecology in architecture, religious architecture and garden art. In 1990, he founded Archos studio, with which he carries out design activities spanning different areas and sizes, and which is characterized by consistent methods and constant research into environmental, social and construction aspects of architecture. He has always maintained that being an architect means dealing with man and his life in the complex cycles of nature. In addition to his professional practice, he constantly participates in cultural debate about contemporary architecture and is interested in disseminating and discussing his own experiments. In 2008, together with a group of artists and architects, he founded the magazine ArtApp, of which he is editor-in-chief. In 2014, he founded the cultural association Scuola Permanente dell’Abitare (Permanent School of Living).
