Lecture by Filippo Bricolo (Bricolo+Falsarella).
Filippo Bricolo, founding partner at Bricolo+Falsarella, will lecture on Tuesday September 20 at 5 pm at Kent State University Florence CAED.
Francesca Falsarella and Filippo Bricolo studied at IUAV in Venice where they graduated together with full marks and honors. After some experience, in 2003 they set up Bricolo Falsarella associati based in their studio house on the Morainic hills of Garda Lake (Verona). Their works have received important awards in Italy and Europe. In 2015 they won the Architettiverona Prize for the restoration of Villa Saccomani in Sommacampagna, a prize they won again in 2021 with the Brolo della Cantina Gorgo in Custoza. The latter project was included in the exhibition “Nuove Cantine Italiane. Territori e Architetture” produced by Casabella, for which they also curated the installation at Palazzo Balladoro on the occasion of Vinitaly 2022. In the field of museography they have curated several installations at the Museo di Castelvecchio in Verona, where they finally restored the East Wing, working in the spaces left unfinished by Carlo Scarpa. Their works have been published in important magazines such as Casabella and Abitare. With reference to their intensely contextual and humanized architecture, they have been invited to hold conferences in Italy and abroad. Filippo Bricolo holds a PhD in architectural composition from the IUAV in Venice and has been continuously teaching for several years. He currently teaches at the Mantua campus of the Politecnico di Milano with Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan, with whom he has a long-standing collaboration.
