"Di Claudio Silvestrin mi piace il linguaggio forte e austero, complesso dietro una semplicità così antispettacolare da fare spettacolo."
I like the strong and austere language of Claudio Silvestrin's architecture – a complexity behind a simplicity that is so unspectacular, so understated, as to render it spectacular.
