How to open a space?

How do we create a space that is a home for our work?

These are the questions we ask ourselves in the Studio Atelierista. We believe a space is not a pre-given condition—instead, a space unfolds through the act of placing.

This way, we started from the act of placing, leaving a first mark. We visited La Romola, which is 40 minutes from the center of Florence—in the village of San Donato in Fronzano. Built in the early 1500s, the space has been an ancient convent, a resting place for pilgrims, and a fattoria.

We are currently discussing how this wonderful space could also house the work of Studio Atelierista.
