Some facades of Florentine churches have not been completed. The project, from which this work is being drawn, aims at the completion of the religious buildings of San Lorenzo, Santa Maria del Carmine and San Frediano in Cestello. For Motoproprio, this project is neither simply an act of decoration nor an exercise of style pursuing a nostalgic idea of the city.
He questions the status of these places beyond the memory function of the past that is usually allocated to them. It is therefore an architectonic project that seeks the raison d'être of these places now relegated to urban limbo. The completion of the facade, here that of Carmine, gives the church a renewed centrality that solves the urban fragility of adjacent public spaces.
