Tresigallo

The Metaphysical city




Halfway Ferrara and Comacchio's Valleys, inside the green Po Valley, there is Tresigallo, an utopistic and ideal city.

A thousand colors palaces, little towers, marble porticos, cylinders, cones, parallelepipeds, arches: walking throug these places is a unique and charmful experience. The silence, only interrupted by the water flow of the fountain, throw us in a suspended dimension between dream and geometry.

The tourist will be fascinated by the polychromy of rationalist architectures: colors all aroung, cold ones and warm ones. This alternation of different colors throw us in another dimension, in a "elsewhere" that piercingly opposes to the centers you normally find in the province of Ferrara and in Po Valley. Tresigallo becomes a game with paricular symmetries, overlapping places, studied armonies: it's the work result of anonymous bricklayers, plaster men, carpenters, glass-makers, marble workers, house painters, sculptors, engineers, surveyors and artists that are still not so studied as they should, like Pietro Porcinai (gardens' architect), Ugo Tarchi (engineer), Giorgo Baroni (his innovation is the trial of iron-cement used in a M.A.L.I.C.A. warehouse's canopy).

There is a methaphysic and estranged dimension in Tresigallo, a sort of crazy calm due to the fact that the urbanistic and architectonical language wasn't adulterate during time. So, you are trapped by charm of a cuty born and dead with its maker, petrified in its evolution, blocked in 1940.

For these reasons, Tresigallo is a happy, but also lonely, architectural experience, one of the few examples left of cities with a sit down project, heritage of social suggestions. In 2004, for his recognizable peculiarity, linked to a clear historical period, obtained the title of "City of arts".

The backwards journey discove3ring the rationalist architecture can begin.
