This thesis describes one individualâ s contribution to a larger effort, an exploration that involved some thirty-two other students from the Accademia di Architettura in Mendrisio, Switzerland. Our shared task was to study a bucolic agrarian region of Northern Italy and propose a strategy for its development. All projects ultimately included in the Atelierâ s vision were to have a significant strategic value to the territory, resonating with and magnifying the landscapeâ s existing qualities. They were to intensify its complex identity without further complicating it. Included in this document are the authorâ s initial impressions of the region as recorded over a series of visits to the place as well as a reaction to these impressions, an architectural response in the form of a cinema multiplex over the Pavese and its fields.
