The project, with “Rose Cinder House” and “Tuscan red House”, is part of a simultaneously recovery operation on three houses within the neighborhood of Testaccio in Rome. In all three cases has tried to keep the memory of the building emphasizing some peculiar aspects highlighted by contrast with some elements of modern flavour. The project investigates issues related to the relationship between the precision of the architectural design combined with the imperfect of the construction materials of the beginning of the century. They recovered were divided in the foreground and underlined by the combination with new materials but all-natural and handmade bespoke: marbles, wood, terracotta, iron and wood doors. The tale of the House reflects, prominently, the relationship between typical aspects of a popular district of Rome with personal history and taste of the owner and of his Irish descent.
