Villa Valmarana Bressan was the first occasion in which I experienced what will later be known as the Serliana, the module of my Basilica and the solution of many of my other designs.


In my eyes it was something similar to a drawing by Raphael, for the facade of the building of San Lorenzo, something in Palazzo Tè in Mantua, but I was looking for a cleaner, lighter shape, to then amaze inside with the grandeur of the Roman thermal structures.


The first experiments, in which I still read the beginning very clearly the beginning of everything.
