5 SCHOOLS IN VENETO

with: Pierluigi Bonotto, Pierpaolo Ricatti. And with Piero Gugliuzza (only School in Arzignano)
collaborator: Aldo De Poli (except School in Sarcedo)  

The five school buildings presented here were designed and built during the seventies: those of Orgiano and Piovene were completed in the late eighties, that of Longare remained only partially built, those of Sarcedo and Piovene were subsequently seriously altered. The architecture of the building is always thought of in relation to the design of a possible square, which was never actually built. Each building is unique in relation to the peculiarities of the place and function, but similar to the others for the presence of figures and typological principles particularly experienced in the Vicenza area, such as the 'entrance-pronaos' between symmetrical wings of the Palladian villa and the 'three-aisled basilica' of important churches and public buildings.
