Along the road that runs along the coast of Lake Maggiore, beyond Verbania in the direction of the border, stands a small house which once belonged to Aldo Rossi. A house for resting after his long trips to the United States and Japan. A world has disappeared. The sequence of images that correspond to the passage of every threshold gather fragments of a precise genesis, a sequence of times and narratives taken from objects, colours and clocks. It is the dream of a lost villa, of something that has already become a myth among the faded Polaroids and the black and white photographs found in archives. Where have all the colours gone, the memories, the objects, their dust? Buried figures which re-emerge in a construction of film frames which alternate between memory and architecture, in that place – Ghiffa – which was the beginning and end in the life of an author.

Abstract

Along the road that runs along the coast of Lake Maggiore, beyond Verbania in the direction of the border, stands a small house which once belonged to Aldo Rossi. A house for resting after his long trips to the United States and Japan. A world has disappeared. The sequence of images that correspond to the passage of every threshold gather fragments of a precise genesis, a sequence of times and narratives taken from objects, colours and clocks. It is the dream of a lost villa, of something that has already become a myth among the faded Polaroids and the black and white photographs found in archives. Where have all the colours gone, the memories, the objects, their dust? Buried figures which re-emerge in a construction of film frames which alternate between memory and architecture, in that place – Ghiffa – which was the beginning and end in the life of an author.
