The casa del Mutilato in Trapani

4 6 2023

Genovese in the Casa del Mutilato project, by now freed from the opulence of the eclectic and secessionist style typical of the school of Ernesto Basile, moves towards a modernity without motiveless breaks with the past, drawing on a more linear twentieth-century style. Along the three elevations of the building, a design attitude which is more tactile than optical prevails, a sculptural play of pin-sharp geometric clarity, expressing Genovese´s deepest tendency towards plasticism.
