04.06-23.11.2014 De Castelli with Cino Zucchi for the International Architecture Exhibition in Venice

An “Archimbuto” (“Archi-funnel”) for the Italian Pavilion

Designed by Cino Zucchi and built by the De Castelli company from Treviso, it’s the portal for the Italian Pavilion at the 14th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice


Designed by Milanese architect Cino Zucchi and built and sponsored by De Castelli, directly from the province of Treviso comes the most powerful outdoor element in the highly anticipated Italian Pavilion at the soon-to-open 14th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice.

Cino Zucchi – curator of the Pavilion on commission from MIBACT – has designed a large portal made of acid-finished Cor-ten steel. The portal, affectionately nicknamed “Archimbuto”, the ‘Archi-funnel’, because of its shape which harmonizes with the existing space and welcomes the visitors to the exhibition, enhances the expressive potential of the metal, thanks to the development of a special finish that highlights the typical colour range of steel – from gray to brown to blue.

The project marks yet another step forward in the excellent understanding between the architect from Milan and the company founded in the Veneto region, which began two years ago with the installation ‘Copycat. Empathy and Envy as form-makers’ created for the 13th Architecture Biennale, the only Italian project that won an Honourable Mention from the international jury of the Exhibition.

This year, the portal designed by Zucchi offered De Castelli not only an exceptional exhibition venue, behind Sansovino’s seventeenth-century Gaggiandre in the Arsenale and not far from the extraordinary nineteenth-century metal hydraulic crane that was recently restored by MIBACT, but also a further stimulus to pursue its experimentations into the wide range of expressive possibilities offered by metal, innovating the hand-made production processes that have always been the distinguishing characteristic of the company founded in Cornuda by Albino Celato.

This company, which has cultivated a family tradition that can boast three generations of metalworkers, has chosen to depart from the current models of metalworking to develop an absolutely contemporary perception, which at the scale of architecture and design refines both the most advanced industrial frontiers in this field and the crafting skills typical of the Venetian piedmont area, developing innovative finishes and production processes to serve their collaboration with famous Italian and international designers.

The large curved portal of the Italian Pavilion will act as a ‘visual amplifier’ to funnel the visitors into the exhibition curated by Zucchi, which under the title ‘Innesti_Grafting’ will explore the repercussions of modernity in Italy, the theme suggested to the National Pavilions by the director of the 2014 Biennale Rem Koolhaas.

Anchored to a cement platform, consisting in 163 panels for a total height of 10 meters and weighing 6 tons, the portal thus is also an explicit materialization of the title of the exhibition: ‘grafting’ contemporary creativity onto the ancient and beautiful spaces of the Arsenale, it is also a ‘link’ between inside and outside, the public dimension of the visitor itineraries and the more sheltered and reflexive enjoyment of the exhibition.

First press conference and presentation of the XXV edition of the International Carlo Scarpa Prize, promoted by Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche, Treviso (Italy).


The International Carlo Scarpa Prize for Gardens is a campaign of studies and awareness raising of a site which is particularly rich in natural, historical and creative values, instituted in 1990 and organized every year since by the Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche. For 2014, the Jury has decided to award the xxv annual Prize to a place in the geographical, historical and cultural area of Bosnia and Herzegovina, in the vicinity of Srebrenica, an area that inevitably prompts reflections on the contradiction between the beauty of nature and the still omnipresent signs of war, and where agriculture, forestry and stock-breeding are the focus of an experiment of small dimensions but immense significance.
