The Danteum Redux: Respectful Morphologies – Caio Barboza

6-The Danteum Redux-Diagram-Caio Barboza

To be honest in most of my history classes in Italy I found the best place to sit on our walking tours, and tried catch up on sleep, so I actually had to do some refreshing to make this post.  Caio Barboza’s “The Danteum Redux” project pulls from the Divine Comedy, an epic poem written by Dante Alighieri often seen as one of the greatest works of literature today.  The Danteum was an un-built monument to Paolo Di Canio designed by the modernist architect Giuseppe Terragni.  Caio translates the story into the programmatic relationships within the library.  The spaces are broken up into the three different realms Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso.  Check it out after the jump and tell us what you think!
